i was born and raised in a little town in the west kootenay's called castlegar bc. i moved to alberta 11 years ago, and for the past 11 years every time i've gone back to see my family it's always been get there and get home as fast as possible. we went back home for the may long weekend, which is also the first time in 11 years we haven't been out with our trucks may long weekend. on our way home we decided to take our time and actually stop and enjoy the scenery. we stopped at most of the points of interest and took in the scenery. it's amazing how much you miss when you're just trying to get from point a to point b.

here's some eye candy for everyone to enjoy

Castlegar BC





top of the Kootenay Pass Summit (see why i was worried about slushie sections. still lots of snow up there)



notice the little cabin still buried in snow



one of my favourite pics of the whole trip



have you been to Yak and back? Yak goats (google Yak BC :thumbsup:)



Moyie Lake



Rocky Mountains









Fernie Tunnel



"World's Largest Truck"









another one of my fav pics

it is a great drive in the late spring and summer so pretty and scenic

the crazy part was through the whole journey we only saw 2 other 5th gen camaro's on the road. the one was in calgary and on the other side of the deerfoot. but we met up with a yellow one just outside of red deer and we were honking and waving at each other. the camaro's definately aren't that popular up here yet

Thanks Kitty, I really enjoyed these pictures.

Btw, in this one it looks like your car just emerged from the lake, completely dry of course! :D

ya the part of the town that got destroyed in the slide is still underneath the rocks. they have determined it to be a national historic site thus making it illegal to remove or deface rocks from the area. the fines if caught doing either are like automatic jail time and serious fines

here is some reading if you want
