2022/07/24 – Port Alberni (west) – Day 3 – Hucuktlis etc.

For some reason, this was the “best day” in my books.

A great ride . Plan was find a view for lunch, and check out the E11/E10 connection Andy J had pointed out. Bonus points for viewpoints, new “squiggles” on the map, verifying J40 was snow free, and for stretching our abilities a little.

2022/06/05 – Oliphant

Missed last weekend, just about missed this one. Spent most of the time pulling/cutting alder and broom. Need to change the course where the pic was taken. Need to tweak the bike some more too.
