Men in Plaid - the video

Well I finally got around to editing some footage of Plaid Lake in the Kootenays of British Columbia. Hiked up to the lake in late August and caught a lot of feisty little brooke trout.
Sorry, the upload quality is not very good, if anyone knows how to achieve better quality without taking forever to load, let me know.

Brooke Trout in Plaid

Paiz and I finally make it to Plaid
Well after three years of planning and then cancelling, Paiz and I at last made it up to Plaid Lake.

We'd been talking about it for years and finally late in August we tackled the ascent.

Plaid lies nestled amid the peaks of the Purcell Mountains on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake.
A steep 4X4 goat track takes you to the trail head where a narrower goat track climbs a couple thousand feet to a nice view of the Kootenay Lake, Kokanee Glacier and the Selkirk Mtns.
