Well I meet up with KootenayCat in Slocan Park, meet Will, Wayne and Scott as well.

We drove up Pedro Crk FSR to the Three towers along the ridge above Slocan Valley. Found a nice little lake just past the third tower. Lots of fun on the rocks along the road. Meet some other ATV's from Playmore Junction area saying that the trail was really rough to the junction.

Went to look for Donut lake and drove right past it. Found some other great views, saw some of the road my Boss designed and built for Timber Sales.

On the way back we found Donut lake. Short little walk in from the road.

I don't have many photos.

KootenayCat,

I should have warned you not to get me close to water, because some part of my body will find away to get wet. :D

I also know were you are to start from playmore, talked with a few of the other locals that have been in the area for a while.

Looks like a good time, how far could a truck go?

All the way. But it is a rough road, lots of sharp rocks and steep slopes. All the lakes though are walk in only but a few 100m from the Road, Rockslide was the only one that would take a bit.

Hey, those pics look familiar! :D Nice to see a pic of me on this site! You getting sick of smoke yet Kris? Or is the wind blowing in the right direction? Trail and Fruitvale have only seen one bad day of smoke when it changed direction and headed south. Other then that it's been normal.

Good riding with ya, we're heading up that way on Sunday if you're interested. Either Koch ck or Lemon ck valleys. I'll call you Saturday.
