Moose Trophy Overland Rally 2017

July 7, 6 trucks and 2 bikes headed out on what can only be described as prepared chaos.  The best plans were thwarted by roads that had changed drastically due to the late spring but the heavy run-off... one thing we could not change, but we were prepared for anything, and so we went in search of it.

The original mission of the Moose Trophy Overland Rally was to visit a few fire towers around the Okanagan area. The unpassable (for us) road conditions prevented that, but our mission to get out together and see some really cool things and explore the backroads of BC was a huge success.

okanagan mountain and divide lake.

Canada day we decided to hike up the mountain goat trail, into okanagan mountain park and spend the night at divide lake. i may have promised an easy 2-3 hour hike. i was right about the 2-3 hours. not about the easy. it's called the mountain goat trail for a reason. that is was 38 degrees in a burnt out mountain didn't keep us cool at all.
