Goat Creek

This is why I love Alberta: it's peaceful, beautiful, natural and breathtaking.


Me and S at the river:


Me and my fabulous, fit, artist friend, A:


The whole gang midway:


At the end!


Who knew we could get five bikes in the back of a truck with a topper on it? If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it!


18.5 K, ending up in the parking lot of the Banff Springs Hotel. Ended the day with a pint in Canmore. *sigh* It really was a fabulous weekend!

p.s.
Note to self: do NOT bring the following into your house: spreadable cheeses (think Boursin light, Laughing Cow Light, Philadelphia Cream Cheese), fancy schmancy ciders (oh, but how yummy they are!) or crunchy cracker things (have you tried Finn Crisps? No? You really should! They are the food of my people (apparently). Doesn't fit into the 100 mile diet thingy, but my maternal great grandparents left Finland for a better life in Canada, so by me eating the crackers, I honour them, right?). Back to the point. Cheese + crackers + cider = yummy but bad for weightloss. I shall speak of this no more.
