Carpenter Creek – Sandon BC

 

Carpenter Creek

While on a motorcycle adventure with my wife, we decided to take a detour and ride into Sandon BC. It’s a ghost town nestled in the Selkirk Mountains about 10km away from New Denver. I was a bustling mining town in the last 1800’s and boasted a population at one time of nearly 10,000. A flood in the 50’s destroyed most of the buildings but a few still stand. Running through town is Carpenter Creek and it was calling out to be painted. A wonderfully calm cool place to park the bike for a break.
