I decided to head out to Coalmont, a community which I had visited a number of years before. I was not sure if I could ride on the KVR, and I was just as happy to wander up the highway for 30KM or so, through the twisty road.
I took a wander up a side road, to Granite City. There were over 2000 people there in the early 1900's, and in a matter of 15 years, it became a ghost town. I guess I had better stop whining about the rise and fall of BC resource towns, whether it be gold, silver, coal, or cedar, it appears that cities and towns seem to come and go, with the deer and the bush always winning.
I had to take a picture of this one, for my Son the aspiring Helicopter pilot. I did not get to spend much time with him at his brothers' wedding, but he seemed to be happy and willing to carry on with the grunt work which will lead to him piloting in the future.
