Zukkin and I spent a night at the camper last weekend, stock piled some wood and went for a ride to play in the snow. Fall is definitely here, pretty chilly ride, had to dress like sledding season.


Did a loop starting at the parking lot on the Bombi summit, headed to this lookout on the powerlines overtop of the community of Glade and the Kootenay river.

Looking up at Siwash mountain above Glade and fresh snow! [36]

Followed a quad trail up through the trees, only about 3-4" of the white stuff, but at least it's coming.

Worked our way back behind Grassy mountain and down towards Erie creek. Did a side trail into Grady lake, always a pleasure to ride into. Still saw a few fish jumping, not cold enough yet to drive them down to the bottom.

Thought I'd try the trail into Marble lake. Did it on sleds a few years ago and was a breeze then. Should have remembered that it's always easier on sleds compared to quads! :confused0006: Wasn't the most extreme trail I've been on, just really wet and kept slipping off the tree roots. It was getting late in the day, so we only went about 1/3 of the way, will have to try it again when we can get an earlier start.

Stopped for a beer at the Snodrifters Snowmobile cabin. Gotta spend a night up here some day.

Going to have to do some work soon to keep this bridge open for the snow-cat. Doubt it would hold much more weight then the quads.

These 3 pics are from the previous weekend cutting firewood. Allright, just an excuse to come up and drink beer! :D

I brought the tripod this trip, the full moon was a couple days before, thought I'd get a couple of late night shots. A few of them look like the middle of the day, but it was about 11:30 at night! :cool:
