My brother Charlie's current herd
Waiting for two more riders at the departure point. From the left, my brother Charlie, my sister Susan's husband John and their son in law Dave and our son Richard on the right.
An ATV bridge? The trail didn't proceed beyond this point so we didn't have to try out the crossing.
A great viewpoint over looking the Strait of Georgia. My brother in law from Port McNeill had gone out riding with his son in law from Courtenay and was shown this trail. We were able to find it from his description and enjoyed having our lunch with this grand view.

There were quite a few of these Penstemons blooming on the rocks
Charlie and Richard checked out the access to a lower rock outcropping

While this is a very poor quality image, it is interesting in that the subject is about 70 kms away across the ocean. This is the pulp mill at Powell River on the mainland of BC. It is shot at the equivalent of 4800 mm and there is so much haze distorting things.
Resting after lunch
Oops, the big Honda got high centered on the hump of dirt. Four of us pushing got it going again.
Some people put a lot of effort in to resurrecting the old logging road enough to get ATVs up it

This is a cropped version of a five shot pano Richard made with his cell phone. That's me in the center.
