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.
Hiking up through the forest:
Some neat rock formations along the ridge:
A Whitetail buck in the meadow:
Jesse likes flower pics too:
View towards Kokanee Glacier and the Kootenay Lake Ferry route
Views from the summit area:
Meadows like these seem hard to come by in the West Kootenay compared to the coast and Rockies.
View toward the Sphinx and Grey Creek Pass area. Leaning Towers group way in distance between the Sphinx peaks.
Wide view of Kootenay Lake.
A worthwhile trip for a quick outing!
