The Oliver STP (Sewage Treatment Plant) is not very good because it's sitting over rocks. Here's a picture I took of the station....

Bonus... here is Barkerville (not sure if it's still in operation)...

Yes, same station. Interestingly enough, when Oliver had two stations the STP station was a degree hotter even though both were at the same elevation. Probably because of the rock and such around the STP station.

I took the above two pictures in 2014 I believe.

Yes, of course.

Sparwood, a very good one (rare).

LOL... yeah. That grassy hill on the left (top picture) looks like it would be a perfect location.

Near Hwy 1 McCallum exit; elevation 55 m (180 ft).

Pitt Meadows, from Google Earth. Another one which is too warm on summer days...

Yup should have used Gumpball's house. :lol: for White Rock, actually the Pitt Meadows station is not that bad given the location and proximity to the road and parking lot.
