Played "Tour Guide" today showing off some great scenery, trails and some more mining history in the Kootenays. Only a couple of mishaps, one borrowed quad flopped on it's side, and one brake handle busted off from a pissed off wife who got stuck and did what your supposed to do, pin it! Too bad, she didn't know when to let off! Bounced off a tree and sheared off the brake handle, then proceeded to fly up the trail with the throttle taped to the bars barely avoiding blowing off the side of it! Wish I had the camera on for that one!

Did some hiking around the bush above a mine we've been to recently and found another adit that hasn't been explored for years.

Of course we had to go in and check it out, we found we weren't the only living things inside! There must have been thousands of "Daddy Long Legs" hanging from the ceiling just inside the entrance! I assume they were getting ready to hibernate for winter, if that's what spiders do! It was actually pretty dark when preparing to take this pic, and before the flash went off, I could feel a few of them dropping onto my arms and neck!

There is a vertical shaft behind the timbers, and you can see an old hand winch on the right.

Awesome pictures ; I think we are going to have to get an atv or else a smaller truck so we can see some of these areas[ the diesel just doesn't seem to be able to fit over some of those bridges and bottoms out on some cross ditches.

Bitchin is good for the soul

This trip was up Sheep Ck which is a few miles south of Salmo.
The spiders didn't bother me much as they weren't some poisonous kind or a species that I didn't recognize! I'm trying to get out every Sunday, especially now that the weather is nice. Before we know it, the snow will be here, and I'll have to dust the snowmobile off!

I found the same insects in a mine shaft up Stave and brought one home to look it up, to see what they were. It turns out they are crickets in medimorfis and you're right, they do go into dark damp caves to hibernate. Spiders have 8 legs and thats the key to solveing the mistery of what they are.When I was trying to get one into a zip lock bag they all started jumping and even a cannon couldn't have shot out of that cave faster. Looks like a nice area to explore with all that history.[3]
