A closer look at things... there's beauty in the seemingly mundane chaotic nature of life as we see it.

The better part of the morning was spent in Meadows In The Sky Parkway. Meadows In The Sky takes you to Mount Revelstoke literally, climbing up to 26Km uphill through forest of cedars, spruce, hemlock and fir, and of subalpine wildflower meadows. The park was only open up to 20Km uphill because of snow up the mountain. The first viewpoint stop (I believe 5Km up), gave us a very nice view of the town of Revelstoke.

We then proceeded to find Begbie Falls. We had this on our scope the day before but could not find the entry off Highway #23. Just few minutes from Revelstoke, we took Mount Begbie Rd which led us to unpaved road which later on became a little dangerous for the motorbike as we took on loose gravel, big potholes, and big rocks through a very narrow road at times.

After Begbie Falls, we continued on Highway #23 towards the Ferry Terminal about 49Km away. Apparently the ferry was brand new and was launched just few days prior. The ferry ride was about 20minutes across the Upper Arrow Lake to Galena Bay on the opposite side. We continued towards Halcyon Hot Springs. While we were there, we decided to have dinner at the Kingfisher Restaurant before heading back to Revelstoke for the day. We were not disappointed with the food. Great food! Great chief!

Locations:   Meadows In The Sky Parkway, Mt. Revelstoke (literally climbed about 26Km uphill)
                    Begbie Falls, Mt. Begbie
                    Blanket Creek
                    Shelter Bay
                    Shelter Bay Ferry Terminal
                    Ferry to Galena Bay aboard the brand new MV Augusta
                    Halcyon Hot Springs
                    Town of Revelstoke (as our basecamp)

For our long weekend getaway, we chose the scenic route of Highway 93 or Banff-Windermere Highway to Radium Hot Springs, up into Kootenay National Park and then through Sinclair Canyon.  A short shower along the way made it a little cold as the temperatures dropped to 12C at times. However, we made sure we were dressed ready for this as we packed both thermal (freeze-out and heat-out underlayers) and rain gears with us.

After a day in Radium Hot Springs, we then proceeded to Golden via Highway 95, a 105-Km stretch along the Columnia River and valley floor. This stretch of this highway was all to ourselves. It felt strange yet releasing as if the road was made just for us -- just the occassional revs and roar of the K1200S as we navigate through twisties and hills, always on the lookout for wildlife.

Locations: Radium Hot Springs, Sinclair Canyon
