August 8th 2010 was a much better day for riding. We took a little tour around Canmore than headed to Banff. Picked up some decals for our bikes, looked around and then headed to Lake Louise, Alberta.
Not too far from Banff, like ?¢ hour ride. We did not see the lake this time around, we have been there before....we did not want to pay the Banff National park fee and were not allowed to park and see the lake. Oh well....it is a beautiful glacier fed lake very aqua in colour from what we remember. Not worth the $20.
After getting turned away at the lake we had to make a decision.....go to BC or head north to Jasper. Since we are a bit ahead of schedule we decided to go north and so glad we did. The Glacier Highway is stunning. Rt 93 got us off Highway 1 and the scenery all along this road is breath taking. We have lots of pics to post. The weather varied from 13 degrees C to 22.
Doing what I do BEST, talk to strangers about our trip and bikes
It rained and it was sunny. It was gorgeous and fun riding even though we had to share the road with cars, RV's and trucks. This made for a great day and making me realize that we are almost at the end of this adventure.
