Desert Kid lives with Mother and Father in Canada's only desert area, the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada. is a character I created in 2004. I created Desert Kid because of my travels throughout western Canada in 1998 and then again in 2004. I lived in Kamloops, British Columbia for 9 years. I loved living there and miss it very much.
In 1998, I traveled throughout the Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia and I found out that Canada has a semi-desert region. That was a surprise for me. Living in Ontario for my whole life, I never heard of the Okanagan Valley or our semi-desert region.
The reason I created Desert Kid is so more people would become aware of the different ecological areas Canada has to offer.
I added Desert Kid to my group of characters called the The Canadian Family live throughout Canada's provinces from one coast to the other. They like to go on adventures and love their country very much.. The Canadian Family are a group of characters that each live in different regions of Canada. I have either traveled through these places or lived in these areas.
