Got to play in the snow again today, made it into about 18" of powder before the quads got high centered, and that was only at about 5000' elevation! Checked out a couple of mines (what would a ride be for us without doing that!), one that is being tested for possible re-opening, another that is worked intermittently. Stopped for a visit at the hermit's place to see if he was still kicking! For an old guy, he's doing pretty well! He's going to be snowbound at his place in a week or 2, so he won't see civilization until spring! [freak] By then he's more then happy to see the first visitors on quads/trucks!

South of Salmo (West Kootenays). The old Canex (Jersey, Emerald, Emerald-Tungsten) mine, and the limestone mine is down below Canex in the Lost Ck. valley. Our backyard playground!:D

Looks like fun kev.....but pretty soon all you'll be doing with those quads is plowing your drive ways.[f]


I see the old fat guys had to climb to the top of that fence before they were able to fit through....[8D]

That's why we are trying to get out and play as much as possible! Then it will time for Speedy to wreck, ummm I mean, ride his sled while I take pics!


Fat old guys! Hey, you would have fit right in! Oh wait, you're not that old![15][15][15][15][15]
