    Ooooh, a 400! While no Maico the DT400 does have cooling fins to drool over.adt400.jpg
    I do like the look of big cooling fins

    The DT400 was a bit of a dog. My friend went from it to an IT175.

    Even I might be able to ride that trail....at about 1/5 that speed.....so I could look at stuff instead of being fixated on what was 20 feet ahead of my front tire.

    Day 1 Part 2 - Buster Lake to Bayhorse Lakes.

    Lost the video into outer space but I was able to capture some stills from the video before they Houdini'd on me.



    Surprising to see the log fence but it was kind of neat. I think it was a border wall for cows!


    Passed another cute pond. I think the cows call it Aspen Creek Pond. Us humans don't have a name for it...that I could find.


    Continuing on the ATV Aspen Creek Trail. Most maps are confusing and list this as single track trail only but on the ground it's for ATV's. Trail 152 single track trail does branch off of this which I did solo ride my last day


    Interesting moments on the trail. You can see the trail marker Blaze on the tree left of allanb.


    "Turn Left at the wooden fence". Trail 159 Trealor Creek Trail.


    Trealor Creek trail had it's moments


    A pretty bridge going through a pretty meadow


    I'm not a canoeologist but I don't think you're supposed to canoe on a gravel road. Just my guess!


    Upper Bayhorse Lake


    Then we rode over/down too Lower Bayhorse Lake


    After Bayhorse Lakes, Bodie and I got the bright idea to ride some of the trails over Ramshorn Mtn. back to camp. The couple captures from the video don't really show how much of a "pucker factor" trail this can and is but you do feel like you're on top of the world.


    We alternated between nervously laughing and crying like school children as we rode up and down the trail. Good thing we're wearing helmets to help hide the tears of horror!

    Looks idyllic from the still screen shots.

    Start our first ride of the first day riding Fanny Hole ATV trail from near camp over a ridge and back down to Buster Lake. Fun warm-up for sure.




    Off we go


    Tire pressure adjustments. Gotta keep low tire pressures.


    Scoob taking a break. I did too!


    Views are fantastic


    Buster Lake. Nice place for a remote tent camp. Easy to get too also. Not suited for a big camper.


    Up next, Buster Lake to Bayhorse Lakes via Trealor Creek Trail
    nice country!! great pics, the air looks so clear, not too normal for this time of year

    The air was clear to start the week of riding. Smoke from fires to the south rolled in the last 2-3 days. Cleared up at night but when the southerly winds started they blew in the smoke. Still, all-in-all one could see a long ways off, maybe even to Alberta!
