I know these pics are kinda old, but I figured I'd post 'em anyway... seeing as I was definately having fun in B.C.!
Headed up w/ the boys for 3 days to Carpenter Lake and surrounding area, and had a blast. No hardcore wheeling or anything (seeing as our trucks were fairly stock), but we had an awesome time exploring and enjoying the scenery. Definately looking forward to heading up there again!

Our campsite at Carpenter Lake the first night

Nice during the day, but chilly at night. Had some fresh snow on the mountains!

Did quite a bit of exploring in this area. Found a lot of cool old buildings, roads, etc... The long wood staircase was pretty neat.

Wheres Tyax? Can't recall the name.. but who knows, maybe we did:dontknow:

Was a gooder trip for sure. Like Mudgirl said, theres so much exploring to do in that area....I think we barely scratched the surface on our trip.

From Carpenter lake heading towards goldbridge you'd go by it. I remember heading to Goldbridge from Tyax to get Fuel for my Buggy when I was there.
