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.
