Roche Lake Area Kamloops Ice Off Report

Well it was a nice day so I loaded up the quad to check out a few Kamloops area lakes around Roche lake. Did a big loop cruising by Frisken, Bulman, Ernest, Bog, Black, Rose, Tulip, Horseshoe, John Frank, Campbell, Scuitto and Bleeker lakes! All that I can say is that the latest cold weather hasn’t helped anything as all the lakes I checked out were still pretty much full ice on but starting to get soft around the edges.  Here’s a few pictures:

Roche lake early April - Ice still on!

Sent the rest of the pictures to Rob who should be posting them on our 2010 Gallery page soon.

All in all it was a great trip till a branch ripped off the valve stem on one of my back tires …

Flat tire on the quad!


but no problem … the CAT got me home!

    Nice report JeFF!
    Thanks for posting your findings! 🙂

    Since your outing I have heard the Scuitto is now mostly open! I just might have to try it out this coming weekend!
