Kaslo, Buchanan Lookout

Kaslo is an awesome little town, there is a good grocery store there and we ended up stopping in there most days to pick up supplies. We didn't check out the paddle wheeler in Kaslo but if you have time check it out. Very well restored.




Nicely restored hotel








After walking around Kaslo and picking up lunch we headed for the old Forestry Lookout on Mt. Buchanan high above Kaslo.





11 kilometers of very sweet logging road gets you to the Lookout at 6272 ft elevation. The Lookout is being rebuilt right now but should be finished this september by the looks of things.

Heading back down






Tomorrow we head up into Kokanee Glacier Park and hike into the Canadian Alpine Club hut.
