I’ll offer Hwy 31A from Kaslo to New Denver, just great.

California 229 would definitely be in my top 3 favorite 510 roads. 1.5 lanes wide, no centerline, tight and twisty, and beautifully cambered. Here's a clip from a run in spring 2009:

Checking out some of my favorite cams to see what the snow level is doing.

That is the #1 Trans-Canada on the far side of the river, one of our cruise routes to the Interior of B.C..

Like a lot of places, we are getting some more snow and cold this week.

The old pass East of Golden was so entertaining - steep with tight corners. Any bits of that accessible anymore?

Not sure what you mean..maybe an original highway pass for #1?

The #1 still goes through there of course.

Been a long time since I have been through any of those areas, so many people packing into the whole Banff and Jasper corridors.

Last time I was up there we stayed in Kootenay National park and day tripped early to Banff. Like so many places it is just overloaded now. Nice highway for a cruise.

Highway 145 between Dolores and Telluride Colorado. Especially in the fall. Feeling adventurous? Take the county road 38 (CR 38) turnoff for the road less traveled.

Highway 14 from Ted's Place to Walden Colorado. BIG fire there last year, sadly the largest in the history of Colorado. Cameron Pass was one of the highlights. Hopefully water erosion isn't too bad and the forest regrows in my lifetime.

Thought I would post this up today, place where my son and I have hiked, high above one of our 510 roads.

Snow load is huge this year in the mountains, in that picture it would be 4- 5 feet depending on the wind.

Sure a gorgeous day up high, so many storms we have had. Hopefully this spring does not heat up too fast or serious flooding will be a major issue.

This is the first time in awhile that the camera was clear of snow and ice.

A month and a bit later....it has still been snowing in our mountains. Lets hope the heat build up is slow as the snow pack is huge this year.

We've had a lot of cool weather up to now but the forecast for Hope has highs of 24°C by Friday. The melt will be on. If it stays warm like that for long that will certainly be a problem.
