Re: post up your camping pics

thanks guys!
if you want to see some STUNNING country, you need to check out Stein Valley, which we went by today with a slight stop...
actually headed up to Monkey Wrench, a great place north of Lytton to ride, just took the wifey's truck to check out some things for our holidays later this summer, been lots of wash-outs and damage to all our roads this winter with the retarded amount of snow AND rain we've had....

Re: post up your camping pics

coming in to Lytton, gets extremely hot here, quite often it is BC's and Canada's hot spot of the day. thankfully with the hi thin cloud it was only around the upper 80's

Re: post up your camping pics

leaving Lytton we took hiway 12 thru the upper Fraser Canyon- which has the distinction of being the most expensive road to maintain in BC. it is extremely windey with high sharp drop-off's and is very narrow, luckily we turn off before we start hitting that carp...

heading up our turn to Monkey Wrench. rough gravel road that climbs about 1000 ft in half a mile right at the start. was also VERY dusty, wife was "complaining" 'bout taking her truck up it....

talked the wife into "checking out" Stein on the way home. her RA was giving her some hake, so we just went to the entrance of the park.
two ways to get across the Fraser, the reaction ferry, which was lined up, or the CN train bridge

Re: post up your camping pics

the ferry crew has a schedule, but they pretty much set their own hrs.....can be hit and miss, so the local natives started using the CN train bridge to get across. they fixed it so no more accidents could happen, it hangs off the side of the train bridge...

Re: post up your camping pics

Stein is a little over 400 sq miles of UN-TOUCHED land, prob the only un-screwed piece left in North America. there is no roads, no vehicles, no bikes, atv's- nothing. you go into Stein on foot only, nothing else. it is truly spectacular in there. when my son is a little older and bigger, i will take him in there.
