Having taken Gumby North-West into the Cariboo country for the past two years, we decided to switch it up and head South-East into BC's Kootenay Country this year. We had nine fantastic days exploring the back-roads of the Kootenay Mountains. The first two days were with the Valley BMW Riders at the annual Kaslo Camp 'n' Ride. Sunday morning John, Doug and I headed out looking for a bit more adventure. As usual we would try our best to avoid paved roads and highways but it was a bit more difficult to do so in this part of the country. We did manage string together a good number of nice passes and gravel roads to explore.
