Aug 25, 2019 - Radium Hot Springs BC

We woke up Saturday with a dilemma; the weather was so foggy I couldn’t see the mountains that surround the town and the forecast was for 100% chance of rain in Lake Louise, Glacier National Park https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/bc/glacier and the town of Revelstoke on the west side of the park. So after much discussing and some coin tossing, we put our faith in the ineptitude of the Canadian weather folks – they are on par with their American counterparts – and their forecast to head back to Golden again, then northwest to Glacier National...

Aug 24, 2019 - Radium Hot Springs BC

Friday’s journey began with a quick breakfast and then we were off toward Golden – for the second time – and back through Yoho and Banff parks for another failed attempt to see Lake Louise. Dejectedly, we then headed across the Bow Valley Parkway that is billed as a more scenic route from Lake Louise to the town of Banff. It was, as much of our time in the parks was, very scenic and completely wildlife free! Seriously; we saw 1 black bear and 1 elk during all of our time in the parks, but we saw 2 black bears, tons of ospreys, 1 bald eagle,...

The journey to our neighbor to the north went well though the weather could have been a bit more cooperative. It was cloudier than we would have liked but it still wasn’t a complete washout. We left the beautiful Stoneridge RV Resort about 11:00 on Tuesday morning and headed north on U.S. 95 to Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho where we hung a right onto U.S. 2 for a few miles till we landed at The Hemlocks RV Park in Moyie Springs. I think Moyie is a French Canadian word that means “just a wide spot in the road”...which pretty much describes the town....

Jan 9, 2019 - Panorama

Hi from panorama ski resort back in b.c. Our trip in lake louise turned out to be fun. Nick.dom and Harry went ice skating on the lake. Plus there was a hot pool back at the hotel. We then travelled southwest out of the state of Alberta to radium which is famous for its beautiful hot pool. Not radioactive I hope! We also had a reunion with Steve and his parents who were so thankful to nick for rescuing their son in Indonesia. Steve plus wife and kids will spend next weekend with us at panorama. They love to snowboard. Harry unfortunately...

Jun 17, 2018 - Radium Hot Springs And Trip to Banff

Great drive into Canada and our first stop at Radium Hot Springs. The farther north we go, the mountains seem to get bigger. Radium is a quaint little town. It is the gateway to the Kootenay National Park. We had a fun day just relaxing. The second day we took a hike down Sinclair Canyon to see the falls. Then we decided to hike a little further to a lodge that was only 2.6 km away. What we didn’t know is that it was up a mountainside. Once we got up there we still had another 3 km back to the scooter. We had no water with us and naturally...

Jun 26, 2017 - Golden to Radium

Rog and I spent the morning taking a look at the small local historical museum in Golden. I especially got a kick out of taking a look inside a schoolhouse that had been moved from Brisco to the museum grounds. The term "metis" is used for folks of mixed native and European descent. We have learned a lot about the mix of mining, railroads, furs and exploration that led to the settling of this beautiful area. After our morning it was a short drive to Radium Hot Springs where we happened to hit upon Radium Days, complete with a logging show....

Jun 1, 2016 - Raduim hot Springs, BC

We are off, we drove from Grandma’s house to Dry Gulch Proventil Park in Radium Hot Springs, BC. We got to go swimming in the hot springs. I did an epic cannonball and Dad claims I did a couple of belly flops. We saw black butted, browned headed, gray bodied, white footed snow show hare (that means rabbit). We (Dad and I) slept in the tent. For some reason Mom and Grandma were both happy we were outside.

Left Coeur d`Alene at 9:30 am and followed Hwy 95 to the border. It bucketed with rain all the way to the Canadian border. The road was very good and there were lots of towns to look at. It got prettier closer to the border. Lots of deer, elk and huge lakes everyway. When we crossed the Canadian border into British Columbia, the first thing we saw was a big bald eagle and lots of signs to “Watch for Avalanches”. It was nice to see all the big fir trees and no clear cutting in site, unlike Oregon and Washington. Canada is beautiful. We...

Alaska 2016

Sep 18, 2015 - Southbound

The snow disappeared as hoped. I now rode over my last big pass, Vermilion Summit. Cold but dry. At a view point just before the summit, I stopped for breath and a photo. A car pulled up. An older, slight, white-haired lady caught sight of me. She sort of shuffled over and asked, "Excuse me, but did you cycle all these roads?" "Yes, m'am," I answered. She threw a hand in the air and whooped. Then she asked for permission to take my picture. I agreed. As she started to rejoin her companions, she said "At 88 I'm so glad to be out enjoying...

Day 15 – Leah Today we said goodbye to Toad Rock, it was starting to feel like a bit of a home away from home. We met some great people and had a great ride day yesterday and we really enjoyed all of the amenities that the campground had. I don’t mind going without a shower for a couple of days, but if it is a couple of days on the bikes – we just feel that much more need to shower. Not to mention having a toilet that flushes and fresh brewed coffee in the morning – those things I will take any day! We had set an alarm for 7am, as the...

2015 BC Bike Trip

Jun 1, 2015 - Hikes - Hoodoo and Columbia River

The day started off slow... taking our own sweet time with a lazy breakfast and a home cooked lunch on the barbeque. The temperatures were well above 20C so we decided to do some local hiking (breaking in my new Columbians!) We had heard of (and seen while driving in..) the Hoodoos but didn't know that they were so close to our villas so after a few inquiries online, found out that the start of the trail (designated as medium intensity with mild incline grade) was only a few km from us. We geared up and headed out to enjoy the mild...

May 31, 2015 - Sunday ablutions, revisit to Kootenay Provincial Park and dinner at Strands.

We got off to an earlier than expected start to the day as Lisette wanted to make the 9:30am church service in nearby Invermere, a small town on the west side of Lake Invermere (the settlement on the east side of which is called Windemere!) Grudgingly I complied finishing off my morning duties in time to get going by 8:50am leaving 20 minutes to find the church (or have a coffee!) after the 20 minute drive to Invermere. Just as we were leaving, Lisette decided to recheck the location and timing of the service only to find it was at 9:00am!...
