Letter: Fossil beds visit fizzles


On Friday, Aug. 16, we made plans to take our six-year-old daughter to the McAbee Fossil Beds heritage site, about 80 kilometres west of Kamloops, near Cache Creek.

She and I were both excited to see the fossils and possibly find a few ourselves.

As tourists, we had stopped by the site on Thursday to find it closed, but noted the hours of operation and went there at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, believing it would be open based on the hours of operation that were posted.

But the gate was locked and there wasn’t a soul in sight.

We were all very upset to find it locked on a day and time that was posted as being open.

I’m not sure if this is happening to others, but it is very disappointing, to say the least.
