Hey Overlanders! Last weekend (Sept 7th and 8th), I took the HauntedBC.ca guys (Andrew & Ray) with Dillon and Maury up Molybdenite Ridge. It was my second time there and I enjoyed it even more than last year. The views are stunning, the weather changes every 15 minutes and that shelf road along the ridge is thrilling to drive. We camped overnight at the saddle and the wind was blowing hard (see Andrew's tent in the video). The lake was stunning and I managed to drive the Jeep up above the lake for some fantastic photos. You may notice that this video has some additional effects. Let me know what you think! Until next time! ~ Paul.

Much has been said on the bcjeepclub forum about this adventure, but the landslide drama aside, the trip into Blowdown Pass was stellar. The weather changes drastically every 20 minutes, the views are amazing and the steep hiking is exhausting. This is a must-see in lower BC. For my buddy's report, see an in-depth write up and video on his blog: http://likes2jeep.com/blow-down-pass/

The annual family camping trip found us based from Otter Lake in the Tulameen area for 4 days. On the second day, we folded up the tent and went exploring in the morning. Managed to find the Blakeburn town site and the Mullen mine ruins, south of Coalmont. We then headed out on the Tulameen River FSR, followed by our friends in their Dodge Minivan to the Tulameen Falls. The falls did not disappoint! My research said that the trail down to the falls was 1.1km... but it turned out to be just over 4km each way. The Tulameen River was cold, clear and the falls are worth a return trip!

Packed up the family and headed North of Pemberton to visit the Bridge River Valley area. After a nice drive up the seasonally deactivated Hurley FSR to Gold Bridge we camped at Kingdom Lake. The next day we toured the original Pioneer townsite (built in the 1930s) followed by the Pioneer hotel, Bralorne, Bradian and finished off with the Pioneer Mine site. The final day we headed up to the beautifully remote Truax valley and bushwhacked our way down to the Truax cabins before heading home via Seton Portage way.

Itching to try out our new roof top tent, we packed up the kids and headed up the Fraser Canyon with Nahatlatch Valley being our destination. Along the way we visited the old Alexandra Bridge and the old Hells Gate tunnel (both very cool, btw) before arriving at Nahatlatch for a night of camping on the lake. After a restful night in the tent we headed out to a roaring Grizzly Falls, found the Trapper's Cabin and finished off at the Fire Lookout. Great weekend!

After our recent visit to Cantelon Creek a week prior, we decided to keep exploring the Silver Skagit Road area. About 15 years ago I drove quite a ways up Hicks Creek FSR in my Suzuki Samurai (the road was deactivated back then). I never did make it to Greendrop Lake. I anticipated that it would be inpassable based on the lack of recent information online, but figured it was worth a shot. Turns out that it is lost to the wild completely around the 2km mark. From Hicks Creek, we headed over to Upper Silverhope Creek FSR (via the TCT) and found our first landslide at about 3km in. At first, it seemed like an easy pile of rocks but I didn't count on the rocks collapsing underneath the Jeep (and with a sheer drop off the edge of the road, made for a "safety first" approach). After we transversed the first landslide, the second one was another few kms up the road and was massive. About 400m across and a 600m drop into the creek below, we didn't bother. I like being alive. I neglected to get a photo of this massive landslide because it was pouring rain and I didn't want to get the camera wet. Filmed on a new GoPro Hero3 Black Edition (since I destroyed our Hero2 in a waterfall last weekend ;-) Music: We Can Make the World Stop - The Glitch Mob

We set out on an overcast Sunday to find the waterfalls of Cantelon Creek. It was evident fairly early on that this trail hasn't been traveled in some time. I neglected to slap on my trailskinz... so the paint damage was severe ;-) The falls didn't disappoint and I managed to get right down beside the raging water. Music: Overwerk - Daybreak

A buddy and I head over to Garnet Creek FSR. We encountered deep snow a kilometre from the American FSR turn-off and turned around. After finding the creek trail, we headed down to Garnet Creek... and made a wise decision to not cross the raging creek. It looked to be about 5 feet deep.

Took the family out to Chilliwack's Peg Leg sand bar on the Fraser River. Crossed the Fraser Tributary without much issue (only a few feet deep). Music By: Skrillex feat. Ellie Goulding - Summit

A 4 day family adventure up the North of Vancouver Island. We started west from Campbell River to Gold River, then over to the Upana Caves. We then proceeded up past Woss Lake to Nimpkish Lake area to visit the Huson Caves. From the Huson Caves, we travelled down to Atluck Lake and up to Benson Lake area before proceeding to Coal Harbour. The spiderweb of confusing logging roads was made more difficult as we encountered many logging operations that were not happy to see us. From Coal Harbour we travelled to Port Hardy for fuel before staying overnight at Georgie Lake (amazing place). Then we headed over to Cape Scott and San Josef bay for a hike to the rock spires. This trip video is mostly pictures as there was not much wheeling involved. Enjoy!

Having seen and heard good things about the Kootenays, we packed up the kids and drove over to Revelstoke, across the Arrow Lakes on the Galena Ferry, along Trout Lake and into the Kootenay Lake region. The highlights of this trip were the awesome climb up the Duncan-Lavina FSR to the Lavina Fire Lookout and the old ghost mining towns of Sandon & Cody. We also stopped at the Buchanan Lookout over Kaslo, visited New Denver and ventured inside the hotsprings caves of Ainsworth along the way. We did attempt Healy Creek, but about 14km in, the road is completely gone to the creek below. Leaving Kaslo on the last day, we stopped for dinner in Kokanee Glacier Park and continued south but could not actually find any place to camp. Surprising since you're in the interior surrouded by trees. FSRs were all gated. So we pushed onto Rossland and the Old Cascades Hwy in the dark, finally finding the Santa Rosa Rec Site.

A day trip quest to the end of Lost Creek FSR where we find the beautiful Kenyon Lake. We also found and ventured down the P2P trail but aborted in the dense forested area as it was over the capabilities of our rigs.

A very cool Aqueduct we found on Nickel Plate Mountain on the way to Penticton.

After a few weekends of tight trails, I figured it was time for a change of pace with a family adventure to the Elaho Valley. I've never been past Cloudburst Mountain on the Squamish Main FSR, but heard about the Elaho Giant Tree near Clendinning Provincial Park. We found the tree and many awesome waterfalls along the way. Super remote and super beautiful... worth the drive. Wife and kids had a great time!

Hit up Vedder Mountain for a ride with friends, family and furry friends. This was the second day of my back-to-back wheeling on May long weekend. Music: Wolfgang Gartner - Space Junk (Overwerk Remix) Mozart - House (Overwerk Mashup)

Headed out to Norrish Creek FSR and drove as far as we could before the snow stopped us. The snow line has risen a few hundred metres the past week. Temperature was around 21 degrees Celcius, which is quite warm for the end of March here. Managed to find an offshoot that took us to an old hang glider launch cliff. Had quite the view of the fraser valley towards Mission. Music by: Young Blood (Dave Sitek Remix) - The Naked And Famous Wide Awake All Night Long - The Jane Doze

Yusuf, Maury and I headed up Sylvester Road to the Lost FSR. We first headed up towards Salsbury Lake, but after slipping and sliding for an hour in the ice-snow, we turned around and ventured past the lower Fuct trail towards Twin Lakes. On the way up Twin Lakes, we encountered a challenging creek crossing. After 30 minutes of trying to get up a hard-left ledge with little traction (open diffs on my rig), I broke out the winch. Yusuf climbed right up of course ;-) Filmed On: GoPro Hero2 HD Apple iPhone 4S Canon EOS-M Music By: Soothsayer - Buckethead
