Single-track mining in the Birkenquille....



A few week-ends ago we completed a very cool exploratory loop in the Birkenhead Tenquille area.



The day started off with a pleasant enough FSR climb....  


After about an hour we were in new territory and found a very cool series of high alpine mines along the way.  




After the maze became a little confusing we back-tracked and headed for daylight. I've seen horror flicks start in places like this!




Core sample graveyard....



And then the push began....





With some scenic single-track sections in between....  



After a solid 6 hours we arrived in our final valley approach and looked for camp....      




It was a very nice spot....



We shared the sunset with Billy....



The next morning we packed up and headed in a new direction....





The morning included some beautiful sections of trail....



And after another long day we dropped into the Tenquille Lake trail descent and called it a success!
