I’m testing the waters to gauge the interest in a springtime trip to the Thompson-Nicola and Nahatlach areas in BC. In past years, getting over Kookipi Cr FSR has been a no go in late April, so I’m thinking May 11-13 this year. I know that’s Mother’s day – but the following weekend is the 1st Canadian long weekend of the season and the place will be crawling with the devils. We could try May 4-6 , but it could be a bit snowy yet. The area between highways 5 and 1 has a lot to offer in power line roads, plus we could check the access to the “mini-whipsaw” – though it probably won’t be accessible until August. I wouldn’t mind making a two night trip of it, but I wouldn’t likely make the border before 6pm that Friday. I’ll be up in BC in March and April so I will likely do a bit of scouting at the lower elevations just to see whats changed since 2016. Here’s the core route:
Let me know if this is an interesting trip.
