Why does the KVR have so many pot holes?

As we have said many times, the RDOS can do nothing at this point about the potholes on the KVR trail.  This is because the RDOS does not own the KVR trail between the Penticton River Channel and the Trout Creek trestle.  We are waiting on the Penticton Indian Band to get full ownership of the land before we can work together to make the former rail line a designated (and maintained) path.

But you may ask a different question: Why are there so many potholes in the railbed in the first place?  Mark Woods found some photos that provide an answer.  This is just south of Bonin Park.
