Had an amazing time checking out the Kootenays of British Columbia. A unique area that is truly off the beaten path. Many of the hikes we did were known only to locals and all of them had long access via 4wd roads. The lakes in the area are large and abundant, very peaceful area.  We spent a day kayaking along the Slocan Lake to view some pictographs only viewable from a boat.
