Wow great report Martin! Quite the interesting read, you experienced just about everything. Beautiful scenery, great sunsets, trecherous weather, dramatic incident(car crash - glad everyone seems okay. Hope your car is too) and comic relief - two girls a guy and a roadrunner.[)]

No wonder you were tired on Sunday night. Looks like a fantasic area.

The cross country route to Haystack Lakes takes off in a N to NW direction from Louden Lake area. From the top of Armstrong you should be able to get good views in that direction. My main interest is how the ridges look to the North-Northwest. Are they hikeable?

Nice report Tbum.... great pics as usual. Glad you survived the storm.
I can remember some pretty horrendous Thunderstorms from my camping days in the South of France as a kid. We had a few, where trailers were blown over and such,luckily they didn't land on our tent.

Oriana, Andie, good for you continuing on after the car fiasco.
Did you get it back yet?

Very cool Trailbum and team. Thanks for the report. This is another area I'd never consider going to until now. I love the openess of the terrain. Glad you all survived the weather. Great pics and report!

Great Trip Report and pics TrailBum, - a good read!
Seeing as this year was a relatively wet spring in the Okanagan, I was just wondering how the biting insects and flies were on this trip?

Cheers, Ken

On the first night we were there, mosquitoes were very bad around camp or when we would stop to take a break on the trail. But on the 2nd and 3rd night, they were actually ok and not that annoying. I guess it depens of the weather too.
