The highway from Kamloops to Tęte Jaune Junction, now known as the Southern Yellowhead Highway, is wrongfully named.
The first journey, by automobile, through the Yellowhead Pass, was in 1922.
The road, from Jasper, Alberta to Kamloops B. C. was officially designated the Yellowhead Inter-provincial Highway in 1970.
Since that time the highway has gone through several changes, in name, due to businessmen who are trying to attract the tourist trade away from the Trans Canada Highway.
The pictures on this page were taken along the stretch of road which is the Southern half of the original Yellowhead Highway.
These pictures were taken in March of 2009.
These pictures were taken from a back road just North West of Barriere
(Barriere, B. C. - Highway Bridge.)
