434. Flight to Cache Creek to Check the River Flooding Situation. Kamloops, May 11 2023

It was an interesting flight in the Thompson and Bonaparte river valleys to see the flooding river conditions. Small town of Cache Creek was already affected by damaging flood and expecting additional flood by Bonaparte River. I flew over Ashcroft and Cache Creek from south to north. I landed at local and to me intimidating and challenging airport with unpredictable weather and thermal conditions. I had to land to change battery of my video camera. Whole area changed already from dry brown and brownish color to increasingly green colors from nature fast spring awakening.
