Thanks for turning me on to the Kokanee Gold. Just had one in the afternoon sun on my deck. Got the patio furniture out today and insured the 990.
I like your suggestions for short hikes around the Kootenay towns. I will check them out next time I pass thru. When I was there in Sept l hiked / ran up the the Alpine Club hut in Kokanee P.P. Great ride up to the trailhead.
