Day 7 and 8

Having hard time finding good internet so here are both days.


Day 7


Had a great stay with Albertabob, super good host, and he made a good breakfast too, you can't ask for better, thanks Robert.





Had this whole route planned out, starting on the 22 and then across towards the 40, for some great back country riding, this is a nice back door track into Canmore, only thing is it turned out to be more challenging then I had bargained for, mostly because of some bridges and roads being washed out, at one point there was a crew fixing the road and signage saying road closed, not for me thou crossed around over a field and all the crew guys waving, so I waived back and thought what a friendly bunch, only to find out some 30 km further there is no more bridge to cross, oops, going back same guys again waving and laughing, I waived and laughed back, I finally did make it, just way later and not exactly on the route I had planned.


The scenery has really improved a lot, and some of the places I wanted to see was Banff and Lake Louise of course, Banff is one beautiful town with so many little shops and things to do you could stay there for a couple of weeks easy and Lake Louise is stunning to say the least, if it wasn’t for this weird guy steeling the shot you could have seen more of it, well now you will have to go and see it yourself.





Day 8


Stayed at the Mosquito lake hostel (camping), and then over the Glacier Icefields Parkway toward Jasper and the Columbia Icefield Glacier, everywhere you look it's one beautiful spot after another, need head on a swivel.










Tonight staying at inmate GISdood, in Prince George and tomorrow I well see if I can find some nice route to follow toward Whitehorse.
