|Mowat Bay launch ramp.|
Usually, our two quads ride front to back with room to spare. To accommodate a third quad (a large Yamaha Grizzly), we turned our two smaller Kodiaks sideways and headed south to Mowat Bay to pick up our friends Dave and Marg.
|Goat Island's Dunn Dock and barge ramp.|
Dave and his wife Marg ride frequently, but going to Goat Island in the middle of Powell Lake is a rarity.
Wayne and I were glad we could share it them using our barge as the mode of transportation.
To make sure the roads would be open for us, Dave called Western Forest Products before we left.
|Logs blocked our way on old logging roads.|
Dave got us to the right logging road to a beautiful overlook for Spire Lake. It was a lot larger than I expected, and a great picnic spot with a fantastic view.

Wayne used his GPS to pinpoint the two huge old growth trees we can see on the ridge of Goat Island from our cabin. We got close, but couldn't see through the large stand of second growth to find our two. Maybe future logging will lead us closer, but for now we'll have to be content with our view from below.
We all headed for the main Clover Dock to check things out before returning to the barge and heading home. It was a fun day of riding, picnicking, exploring, and being with good friends. Thanks for sharing it with us Dave and Marg. -- Margy
