Not plated yet. Waiting for higher elevations to be snow free, more dirt, less pavement.

Morning low of ZERO isn't too inviting either although the scene in your pic is.

The afternoon of the pic was 19c ... very nice. I went up Cayuse Creek FSR and did not hit snow. But did not go all the way as I ran out of time. I will have another look this weekend.

Peein in me Creek eh? LOL ... well just so happens I will be takin the dog for a drink there in about an hour! Pass Creek that is.

Wasn't bad today here. Just got out of my Stanfields.And just a little more mud on my bike/boots....

Looks good for next week!...I guess I'll stop in Lemon Creek for a piss as usual and then on to Pass Creek Rd. for another one. Castlegar then backtrack to Thrums and pick up Borscht & sausages and then up to Rossiland.

Yep....at this time of the year I don't see many ADV type bikes on the roads. Mostly cruisers.....

Fresh...??? Much warmer this morning at 460m than yesterday. 4C!

Looking up the hill....trees are covered with white stuff just another 150m or so up.

I hope the gate is open just so I don't have to squeeze lift and push the little bike between the post and cliff.

I think I can still ride between the piles of Elk droppings.

Only about 6 km. this was after work and I just ran out of time. Will head out that way, or Norn's on Sunday and see where the snow is.

Yep...stop at that old service station on the way to Syringa/Cayuse and take pics. Interesting yard that looks like it has been locked up "as it was" many years ago.

What I really should do is put the big thumper back together and ride it if just to wear out them knobbies it came with.Not that the K1200RS hasn't seen its share of Kootenay gravel roads and FSRs.

Well....lets go see where the snow really is, I might see the elks or even better the goats.

Snow is about 100 meters up Mt Sentinal looking above Pass Creek Rd. Lots of Elk there too. 3c here. Check out my weather station below here in beautiful downtown Raspberry !

Enjoy your ride.

Best guess...my little bike isn't GPS equipped. 700/750m for the fresh stuff.

I should have brought my new piece of Stihl equipment. No Huskies up there so I didn't have to sing a little Zappa at the end of the road.I did sing anyway!





Quite a few push and pull over trees and some "walk it under"....




Oh well back home so the sun is out over the hills by now. You are safe down there I don't piss in the creek, just the creek(ette)....lets go see if I can find snow with the road/dirty bike.Maybe I'll take a leak in Trout Lake and send it the other way....



250's....650's? Please do not bring them up there, I'd rather not do rescue calls. Last one was an ATV but the one before just some city guy who locked himself out of his Ford truck and didn't even know the code to open his doors. Long climb down for help!

Road is sure poopy....!Could be the same ones, they like to follow the powerlines.

This is a little over 3 weeks ago up Cayuse, thinking you are not getting much past the top of the hill around 8 k up

You are right. The road fork just past 8 km. just past the turn to the falls. Not a lot of snow but enough.

But the sheep were up making avalanches near the blind corner. Mom and this little one just watching. Ratty looking sheep this time of year.
