Got out for a second day of fun on the quads this long weekend! Headed up Sheep Ck to play in the snow, see a bear and check out some nice quad trails. You know it's hot out when it's hot even at 7000' in elevation in the snow! Had to head down low in the valley to relax by the creeks!

View from the beginning of the ridge trail above the Reno mine, still some snow left!

Cool looking (dead) tree. Won't even guess it's age, but at 6400', they don't grow very fast!

Sitting on the height of land (on the ridge) at about 6700', amazing 360 degree view.

Coming back down from the top of the ridge, pucker factor got up there a bit as this sidehill was looking down a long ways!

Right front tire just kept getting higher while the left rear went deeper in the snow!

Rode a couple of nice quad width trails up through the trees, but was having way too much fun to stop and take pics! Will post a couple when Wayne sends me his.

Belongs to a trapper, he's got one up Sheep Ck and one at the end of Lost Ck to the south. Amazing work done building them, must have had a portable sawmill at the site.

We most definitely do! When I hear about people whining about making less money then the same trade in Alberta, I tell them that's the cost of living in BC, the best province!


Lizard, saw one bear just below the ridge, pretty sure it was a black. Gorgeous red/brown colour, maybe a 3 year old, not nearly as big as the monster black bear I saw on Saturday.
