]We spent 10 days near merrit camping and quadding. Barely a cloud or rain the whole time we were there it was amazing. Saw a ton of wildlife. 4 Bears, countless deer, a cougar cub. Most of theses arent in any particular order.

saw this rock around the camp fire ring as soon as i got out of the truck

Our own beach front access. Only 4 people showed up to use the beach when we were there. Its supposidly a popular spot for the locals.

Did you ride the KVR right into Princeton? I've only ridden the KVR once, and that was just for a little ways from Larson hill to get to trails.

Stryker, ya it is, we are heading to chipmunk in a few weeks with him. Other than that we go out somewhere pretty much every weekend.

You can go from merrit to penticton on the kvr if you take a long detour on a few fsr's near coldwater to go around a section of a reservation
