South-Eastern BC, around Cranbrook

The summer of 2003 was disastrous in BC, with up to 800 forest fires burning at a time. Many people in the Kelowna and Barrier areas lost their homes. We were luckier in the Cranbrook area.

At times, the smoke made breathing difficult - but it gave us some picturesque sunsets

There must be some climbing to be had here!
