Hey, nice pics John! Now I don't have to resize all of mine!

Glad you two could join us for a ride, and what a ride it was! Over 10 hours sitting on the quad, I need full IFS now! Especially after doing it again the second day with you guys! And really glad Steven wasn't hurt, that could of been nasty! He is one hell of a rider [36] , the places we took him, I would never have tried when I had a dirtbike! And love his response when we decided not to try that steep, rock covered climb, "how am I going to learn if I don't try!"! [15] I like his style! [cheers] And, gotta love the "tree bowling"! :D Score, Me-2, trees-0 !![36]

Here's the pics from Sunday's ride to the same place, just Wayne and I.

Quad trail along the saddle between Koch Creek and Cony Creek on the Burton side. 3 km of this!

Doe on the Burton side. She stood there looking at me while I fiddled around getting the camera out, then bolted. Must be camera shy. :D
23316

A look at the Millie Mack mine. Never did get up there this weekend, saving it for another trip, you coming John? :D
23336

A few of the buildings still standing at the bottom of the valley. The shop would be nice to have at home, bigger then most houses!

And the atco trailers where the grub was served

The goat trail up to the ridge was a little intimidating. Off camber, loose, and a vertical drop off the edge! :eek: I don't think it even phased Steven!

This will always be known to us as "Bearspray Cabin", hey Wayne? [f] :D [15]
23315

The smoke from fires across the USA border made an incredible sunset. The pics don't do it justice.
