It was bloody cold as hell,Home early because there was a serious accident involving the d10 cat.It rolled down the hill,The operator was lucky to be alive,He walked away from it with only a few bruises.Going back soon.

I take you were over in phase 4 Brad. Gee man you were up there when it was warm for two weeks! Lol. I think I drove by you day in the vac truck. Saw the D10 the other day. Dam lucky he still alive. Good things for seat belts. Finally had a slow day and stopped in to see you, you had just left for Dawson. Maybe next time Brad. Saw that they were hauling out Rock drillers yesterday.
have some photos I will post when I get home next week from up there.

Good pics ...so happy the guy is alive. (cat operator)
Seen cats working along the side of mts with only feet to spare from the edge & thought how anything could happen.

Go over the edge or landslide etc...

Cold your way & here in Vancouver area a real mixed "bag" lately from high winds to down pours to the other night 22 F to some snow fall in some areas of Vancouver this am & higher areas of Coquitlam to now some sun trying to make it's way thru thin clouds.

(nothing like the sun in Ian's part of the world)

Just got back Willow Creek Brad. A load of winter water to the tank up on top of the mountain. A lot like PRC, could not see the hood of the truck at times but no bloody HOWLING wind storm. You will enjoy the drive.up the hill! Lol

Good luck to you guys in the cold north. I'm still basking in the heat in Thailand but I'll be back on the rock in a month. I'm looking forward to the upcoming trout season, but I'll miss my motorbike rides and my hot ladies.

My Iphone will not get a good photo of the herd, Most are to far away in the field.
