I thought BC was supposed to be pretty...:thumbsup: That is some very cool terrain. It sure beats the hell out of high desert scrub and burned up cheatgrass. Wildfire season is taking its toll out here. I'm jealous....SC

Geez. Those barrels and white power are to close to a guerrilla lab arraignment. Did you touch or taste the material?
