Canada: The Corkscrew Road

  • 575 Columbia Street, SW corner of Columbia and Sixth Ave., Kamloops, BC V2C 6M6 Canada

The Corkscrew Road is both real and imaginary; real because it once ran between Kamloops and Knutsford; imaginary because so much of it has disappeared. This walk will lead you to a few abandoned sections of the Corkscrew Road and share with you some of its history. Today the road exists in a strange limbo between remembering and forgetting. This in between state allows for both historic speculation and creative reconstruction. Come re-experience and re-imagine the Corkscrew Road.
