Travel in Juxtaposition: Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa and Sloquet Hot Springs
Wednesday, 8 Aug, 2012 – 21:41 | 2 Comments
Harrison West Forest Service Road

The overnighter to Harrison Hot Springs offers it all; farm fresh locavore dining at Limbert Mountain Farms, quality time bobbing around in the manmade pools of the Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa, dinner at the Copper Room. At the opposite extreme is the hardly-developed Sloquet Hot Springs, a site where campers have built semi-natural pools mixing river water with the outflow of geo-thermal heated water flowing from the rock walls. What will it be? All the creature comforts, or the stark quiet of nature? Really, that’s the rider’s choice, or none at all, because you can have it all and do both.

Blowdown Pass: Expedition in an Afternoon

P1040321

“I don’t think we’re making it through that,” is Mark Binstead’s first response surveying the tricky re-mix of terrain slopped across the Forest Service Road (FSR) to Blowdown Pass, one of the most accessible alpine back entrances to BC’s famous Stein Valley, ahead of us. Composed of rock, trees, branches, mud, top soil and other debris set atop a base layer of compacted snow and ice, at first glance the slide looks impassible. The statement gives me pause, a rider whose selection of routes and honed dirt skills have constantly pushed Kevin’s and my off-road bounds, Mark is not a man who turns back easily.

Death Valley: Core, Not Too Hard (GPX Included)

Route 1 - P1020488

This spring, thanks to a rainy season, Death Valley became the driest destination in California for motorcycle adventure media; many of whom touted Death Valley as the upper end of intrepid Adventure. Looking at Mic Cumming, a long time street rider with a number of dirt outings countable on an amputee’s hand, we can’t help but think the hardcore context these outlets are giving to Death Valley might be harming the destinations adventure approachability.

KTM 990 Adventure R versus Google Navigation

KTMvsGoogle

It’s snowing, except looking at the dash display the temperature is +10C. A hard rain, or hail, or a hallucination? An effect of the “Eyes of God” Twisted Throttle Denali D2s white light, hitting the downpour’s drops? Fatigued, my mind scrambles for why Highway 1 heading into Hope, BC has turned white. I’m on the final leg of a 1225km ride from Eureka, CA to Sunshine Valley, just outside Vancouver, BC pitting KTM’s 990 Adventure R against a Google Navigation estimate. It’s a total of 1225 kms, or 760 miles, in one go. The hail covered road, well, that’s not to plan.
