BC Kootenays and Washington Cascades. A couple vids

Recently got back from a solo 1 week 2400 km (1500 mi) trip through the BC kootenay region and back through northern Washington and the Cascade mountains.
Beautiful ride and great weather. The Versys ran flawlessly!!
Tried the Gopro for the first time that my daughter found.
First video is on the way home on Hwy 2 in Washington.
No Video
These few vids are the road between Kaslo and New Denver. It is a must-ride if in the neighbourhood.

I hope you BC guys know how good you have it. We have some great riding in Oregon but you have us beat. I'm doing a 9 day Vancouver Island trip next month. Can't wait to get back up there.

Yeah, beautiful area, thanks for sharing, and thank your daughter for us!
The Destination Highways BC book is indispensable for finding this and other great roads in the area.

Nice! Glad to see you had barely any traffic on the Kaslo run, that road is freakin' fantastic on the bike. I'm heading out next week for a weeklong trip down south, been waiting all year for it...
Cheers!

I went early in the morning and it was great. There and back I saw maybe 6 cars. The only problem with that time of day is that it looked like perfect deer-jumping-out of the bushes conditions ( I saw a couple early on) which slowed me down a bit.
My original plan the night before was to just head back down to the Balfour ferry but I thought since I was right there I would kick myself later if I didn't do it so I rode to New Denver and then back before heading to the ferry.
Sure glad I did. That ride is in the Destination Highways book I found out later.

Have a safe and fun trip.
