Any interest in a run up Crowfoot-Fowler Mt"s on sun 14th.
Most of the snow should be gone"maybe".

OLD METAL

Not 100% sure me can make it over the top yet,
still see a bit of snow. Was going up to find out, then if we could,
down the east side and over to Fowler. And if early enough down
towards Seymour Arm. Would like to make a weekend trip of it latter on this summer.

Ron, what's the trail like? Mostly mud and loose dirt? Really twisty? Great scenery?

Doesn't really matter to me since I can't make it but I'm curious anyway.

How late in the season is it still passable? Would it be an ok fall trip?

Ya Larry, all the above but with a little bit of rock thrown in on the Fowler side. The only sucky part is coming down Fowler to Seymour, really overgrown. Fall would be OK, little dryer and no bugs, till around the middle of oct.

i want to find out where the trail is anyway. if i do have to ditch my truck, would you have room for me and a passenger? i still thinkin about opting for the easier run in vernon, but squilax is like 10min. from my place.

I worked with Jeremy for a few years, I've seen him do some pretty "Unique" things with his truck. You would be surprised what he'll attempt.

Ron up to 4 Jeeps from the club heading up from Kelowna. All have winches and are good drivers. Louis will phone you and give you a firm number by Sat. I'm still not sure if I'll be there, I am having some steering issues. By the way Ron e-mail me if you have a CJ spindle kicking around.
