In the Heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains

Shot today. This is on the Bull River FSR which is in South East BC. The mountain to the Left is Goat Haven Peak.



This is where it the picture was taken, and the road we traveled on.

That is the Bull River on the right. The shot was taken before the first one. We are still heading up, so pretty much North/East. As you can see they are grading the road. There where 3 graders working. I assume it is because they log up here in the winter time and they are preparing the road for that. By the time we came back, about 60 klicks had been completed, so it was like riding on well oiled ball bearings. With my street tires, I spent most of my time in first and second gear. At one point I was in second gear and had no control of the bike. I was heading straight towards the ditch. I throttled up, got the tire spinning a bit, got a bit of a drift happening and looked where I wanted to be. I got there, but as it was still as slippery as the other place, I now had a completely different problem. The judicious use of the clutch and brake and throttle, got me lined up. That is when I shifted back into first and rode the rest of the way out much slower.

The image is just as we start to climb to the top of the pass where the Bull River drains south, and the East White River drains north into Monroe Lake.



This is the elevation and location of the top of the pass.

Obsticle course

When we got up to Munroe lake we found the bridge was out. The campground is just a couple of hundred feet in from the bridge but they had it blocked as the bridge was being replaced. Once we got around the equipment we found that the construction crew had taken over the campground, so they pretty much had private camping for their time up there.

There was enough room to get a quad around it, so we picked a line that would work for the bikes. On the way in, it was downgrade so that was not all that much trouble. On the way back out I led and got hung up on a rock. I had to pull it aside, then back the bike up a bit and take a bit more of a run at it. Better tires would have got me through easier.



Don followed me through....

As far as we got...

This is as far as we got. The crew was working, so I couldn't even get close enough to see if it was possible. There is no way around this unless you are willing to do a river crossing, and the water is deep here. So we turned around and headed back.



On the way back, and just after the Monroe lake junction.....That is "PhotoShop Glacier" on top of Mount Peck.



By the time we got back to the highway, I was running on fumes, so we fueled up the bikes, and then fueled ourselves up just down the road....



A dirty filthy Buell.....so it MUST have been a fun day....

Image capture info

I use a Sony NEX 6. The lens I used on these shots was a Sony 18-200 mm zoom lens. I shoot in both RAW and JPEG for all captures. I use the JPEG to proof, then open up all images in RAW in PhotoShop to do any corrections or fix's. Once I get the result I want, I convert them from the PhotoShop image to a 72 DPI JPEG resolution in a 1,000 x 685 size.

The top three pictures are only modified to fix some small spotting due to dust on the lens and cropping for effect.

The shots of the equipment are not modified at all, as I see them as "Record Shots".

The one of the road and mountain with the fake Glacier is heavily modified in PS as that was taken about noon and the good light is gone.

The pub shot and filthy Buell shot are right out of the camera.

I took the RAW image of the first photo, fixed up a few blemishes, took one shadow out of it, cropped it for effect, and printed it on my 10 ink Cannon PIXMA Pro 4800 x 2400 DPI 10 Ink Jet printer. The print comes out with incredible clarity.
