A couple of summers ago I rode to Invermere BC. Invermere is situated on the mighty Columbia River in the middle of a couple of mountain ranges (the Purcells and the Monashees I believe - correct me if I'm wrong). Above is the Columbia from Athelmere.
The first day there I rode up past Panorama Ski Hill to Jumbo Creek.
A typical, fast mountain creek. Cold and fast!

And of course the bike gets dusty:
But he scenery was worth it!
