Idaho Peak

Todays destination Idaho Peak high above New Denver and Slocan Lake. We headed north again to Kaslo for lunch supplies and then west on highway 31A to the turnoff for the old mining town of Sandon.





Museum in Sandon


From Sandon we are treated to more sweet steep winding dirt roads.







Looking down on Sandon








Getting close to the top.







From the parking lot its about a half hour walk to the old lookout on Idaho Peak







Idaho Peak wildlife







This guy had no fear. We could of had Grouse for dinner but we had other plans.






Looking down on New Denver. There is a great municipal campground right on the lake where the creek enters the lake.







Looking south down Slocan Lake Valhalla mountains and Provincial Park in the background








Alpine Wild Flowers







From Idaho Peak we headed down to New Denver and Silverton.

Coffee in Silverton










From Silverton we head south on HWY 6 along Slocan Lake







Back to the campground at Kokanee creek for a cocktail. Cheers.
