Goldbridge was a blast
To anyone that digs checking out relics or ghost towns - this is the trip
as always have a blast - great people
big thanks to Mike and Lucky - had an awesome time camped with you guys

Since i work in Squamish i figured no point driving home
stayed in the Kalaine (sp) pay campground on the first night (across from Shannon Falls)

so when i stop in at the office - oh we got a real good spot for you........
this was it

it didn't look nice at all so i packed in the spot two over
this was a nice spot beauty view, tons of nice rocks to sit on so i pull in a grab a beer
looking out to the road

when the salmon are spawning this is the place to fish
this is traditional fishing grounds
the structures you see are for dying the fish out

did some ghost town touring one day
this is the town of Braiden
no one lives here anymore
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t226/mudgirl_photos/Goldbridge%20thee%20trip/371.jpg

two years ago i cruised thru here and a family lived here - i was told the guy that owned this house bought the whole town and was trying to perverse them - he had re-roofed a few of the homes
looks closed up for the season - maybe its a summer home

The bird is called a Whisky Jack, very friendly birds. If you would have held your hand out with some bread, the bird will take it right out of your hand. excellent pictures you have there.[cheers]

Whiskey Jack, camp robber, they sure do clean up the breakfast when you leave the dishes outside! We've got pics of them feeding out of our hands up snowmobiling!

Nice pics, I can't wait to see the mines! [36]

That is so true, because I put my hand out and that bird almost came to my hand.
