Re: Silvia

Nice trip. Did you rent bikes?

Both my brother's cabin at Loon and M&D's ranch in the Beaver Valley near 150 mile are evacuated and at risk, not good. We were in the Maritimes for 10 days and it was all anyone talked about when they heard we were from BC. Not much specifics on the news either makes it tough to sit and wonder...

Re: Bike rides

Done that route heading the other way twice now and the exact trip you just did into the snow once a few years back too...only I was with a group of trucks that were stopping to pack garbage out, I loaded out most of an abandoned camper remains in Yeller. Great views all along there and also up at t...
