Well midway through the week before aug long and it seems like its draggggin on forever, so figured Id throw up some pics of the last few weekends that didnt warrant a report on their own. Hopefully some of you guys will do the same to help ease the midweek blues!

Took my family for a hike up Crater Mt. south west of Keremeos. It was rainy in the valley and Snowy at 7000ft so we had to turn back about a km or two from the top

geology is weird. Here it is about 6500 ft elevation, and in the pictures below from revelstoke it is only about 6100 ft but looks way higher.

then we went to revelstoke to hike because all the alpine flowers are out about this time. bugs are also out in full force.

According to my research, somewhere in this picture is a mine above the treeline but the road is blocked because a bridge is out. gonna look into it.

Cool pics! Love the high alpine stuff, never been to Revy, but close, north-west of Trout lake which has some similar terrain.

What is the name of the mine you were looking for? Sort of looked like Silvercup ridge above Trout lake, but no bridges on that road.
