Three weekends in October near Calgary

With winter (the dreaded W word) fast approaching I have made a point of getting out every weekend to finish off the local riding season. It has been a bit chilly but with the proper gear very bearable. This weekend I have not gone far from the city, but still managed to find some interesting riding in the river valley east of Calgary near McKinnon Flats.

Last weekend I was out west on Powderface and Elbow falls trail and it was chilly and snowy out there. I passed a couple of KLR riders heading back towards Bragg Creek. They were on slush and the shaded side of the road so I understood when they didn't take a hand off the bars to return my wave.

The snow was curling over the peaks.

The weekend before that the leaves were looking good at McLean Creek and I got a bit muddy.

I am going out again today for one last blast before the line of snow to the west gets moved into the city tonight. It has been a great season and I hit a new milestone for riding this year. It will be hard to top, but I'll give it a try!

Uhaul, it's part of the KTM experience.

Nice stuff. Love the McLean Creek shots. They take me back to my Jeep days. Also like the Bow Tower - highest building in Canada west of Toronto.
I'd rather be dragging a club than clubbing in drag.
