Johnny had a couple in from North Carolina (Gary & Natasha) this week. I unfortunately had to work, but was able to join in on a day or two of fun!
…..That hangover came to full fruition this morning, but Johnny wasn’t going to let the kids jam out on this one. Johnny was as alert as a pair of Great Horned Owls this morning, even if our Corn Stars were of the temperment of Weeps today (that’s a Farley Mowat reference that you’ll just have to look up).
Kobau is one of our favourite hidden gems, and today was as perfect a day as you could ask for.
Gotta love that view from the top, especially as it’s a ridiculously long haul to get there. We managed to spot our first bear of the trip on this one, clowsely followed by the second. They were really shy, so no pics. Sorry, you’ll have to be content with those owls.
The top of the ride is full on Star Wars quality forest speeder action, and the occasional Shore style log ride.
As this is rarely ridden, old school natural logs are the order of the day.
The lower reaches are all open sage and grassland. Not exactly natural state with all the cattle here, but still unique enough that they will probably be part of a National Park soon.
I can see why.
It’s difficult to get the scale of how large this hillside really is.
No matter how long you ride, it seems lilke the valley gets further away.
How many bikes do you see in this pic?
How about here?
As always, Johnny makes me the poster girl…..I think he is just a good photographer…
Cows. And they’re not getting out of the way.
Too stupid to run. I didn’t care either. The ruts caused by last years heavy rains have filled in with dust, and it’s a riot to surf on. As you read this, it’s raining here, so the dust should have settled, but 34C on the last day of May is nearly unheard of (*historical temperature records were set all over BC this week).
Still going down, but we’re almost there.
We finished the day with a barbeque at Rancho Relax
o and a full moon. What a way to kill a hangover.
