So.... I went up to the Baldy lookout above Little Fort. Little Fort is an hour north of kamloops for anyone who did not know. I took a few people with me for the bumpy ride. It took two hours to make it up from valley bottom. We only had one major stop and that was to build up a part of a switchback that had a nasty twist in it. I got a video of me finally making it over it. It will come when I figure how to put it on here. Anyway, it was wonderful up top. Cold, but nice. The lookout is at just under 8,000 feet. Well, I hope you enjoy the pictures. The pointy mountain peak i am pointing at is Dunn Peak.

when you do go, let me know. I'll go again. My wife's grandparents live in Little Fort, so it gives us another reason to go.

Heh that's a little bit of dust ya got there. My '94 4Runner was VERY bad for dust. I live on a dirt road (21km to pavement) so it was always covered in dust inside. My Pathfinder is pretty good though, seals up nicely... but then again, it doesn't have a sliding back window that you can "forget to roll up"

I should go for a lil trip up there, not far from me... :D

I will go again. There was lots of dust because I had no rear window, DOH!
I have lots of pictures of the mines.

It depends on what type of touring you like to do, whether it be nice logging roads or rocks, hilly trails. Anyway there is lots to do around here. I will message you some places that I enjoy going to. By the way, it was just a dust smudge on my lens, sorry.
