Had to enjoy the gorgeous weather on Sunday, so dug out the quad and went up to the Seven Mile Dam and rode the Pend O'rielle Valley. Had to take the jacket off by 10:00am and kept it off the rest of the day!

First ones to unload, there were a few more trucks here at the end of the day

Found a nice quad trail that followed part of the Old Dewdney trail built in the late 1800's.

11782

Cabin we saw along the Dewdney trail, good place to warm up if the weather changed
11771

Nice view off the deck of the Pend O'rielle river
11779

Stopped for a bite to eat at the river

Took a side trail and saw this set up
11772

Rode past the camper and found this bridge across the creek
11780

And followed the trail up to this old cabin
11774

11773

The roof was in a lot better shape then the floor was! Nice skylight too!

11792

This pooper has seen better days!
11793

And yet Wayne still felt the urge to sit down on it! [15]
11788

The highlight of the trip was to venture into the old Remac mine!
11787

The hole on the right is where we entered. There is a tiny hole we crawled through to get into this level
11775

The light is the tiny hole we crawled through from outside!

11778

There is an adit (tunnel) that parallels the hole and these cubby holes go from it to the pit.
11786

Me standing in one of the cubby holes.

This is the other adit that parallels the pit on the other side.

Thanks y'all! :D The Remac mine is definitely one of the more awesome mines to see. The size of it is absolutely amazing, especially when you get into the level we were at that day. And it's deep too, throwing a rock over the edges you can count to 15sec before you stop hearing it bounce off the sides!

John, I finally broke down and bought new front tires for the Kodiak. Mudlite XL's. I'm making it to the top of the Triune mine this year for sure!

Mudslinger, snow level wasn't much above us. We didn't head up to find it, but wouldn't have to climb much to see. I will have some pics this weekend playing in the snow. Doing an overnighter at a buddies cabin on the sleds. Probably going to get a bit drunk out, hope we keep the sleds in one piece! :D Spring riding, you can climb anything, but you gotta come back down eventually, and it's a toboggan ride on the way down! :eek:

Gladstone Ck, or Gladstone park by Christina lake? We took the quads up to Gladstone Ck a month ago, they have logged the hell out of the whole area! You can still ride the lower original road from Deer Park to Sunshine, then just past there it pops out onto a new logging road/clear cuts. The upper logging road should be clear of snow by now, was impassable when we tried.

We'll have to get out for a ride or 2 when you are down! [cheers]
