    Backroads map book BRMB, its not bad but all the road and creek names stay too small to read when I expand the screen so I end up needing to put reading glasses on anyway!!! :dirtdog
    You can save map areas for offline, thats handy.

    Yes the Big Bend highway or Hwy 1 from Golden to Revelstoke up to 1962.

    There is another short section just North of Mica creek.Look for the Western toad habitat sign!

    Downie Creek to Mica is rather rough but SPL (Selkirk paving) is all set up just South of Mica so new pavement coming soon?

    Lovely pork roast and grilled veggies on the fire.

    So, a nice (and yummy) secret camp spot on the north eastern shore of Slocan Lake. Sweet!
