The story behind the image
Salmon Arm in British Columbia is a striving commmunity that is located on Highway # 1 right in the middle between Calgary and Vancouver. It sits at Shuswap Lake, surrounded by mountains, which makes it a perfect spot for outdoor activities.
We stayed for a night and enjoyed the buzz of the town and the variety of restaurants. The most remarkable feature, however, is the looong pier in the town center – the longest pier of B.C. and as such a favorite place for anglers.
Looking at recent satellite images, the area has changed very little over the past 20 years. I have to admit that like this, especially considering the radical changes that take place elsewhere, and much faster.
