Default Mt Davie

Mt Davie is above the village of Boswell on the east side of Kootenay Lake. An old logging road goes to 6200 feet on its southern flanks. From there it's just a 1500 foot light bushwhack and steep hike to the ridge. The rewards are some nice views of the southern Selkirks and Purcells.

Meadows like these seem hard to come by in the West Kootenay compared to the coast and Rockies.
