The Rocky Mountains. They offer spectacular scenery and challenging conditions in equal measure. My ride from Revelstoke to Calgary left me exhausted, sore and happy. It feels amazing to have crossed the Rockies by bike but from the tardiness of this blog post you can probably tell I wasn't finding much energy in the evenings for posting. I've driven through the Rockies numerous times but experiencing the Rockies from the seat of a bike was somehow different. Vistas lasted longer. The passage of time became more elusive.
After a good rest and visit with friends in Calgary, I'm now off to start my tour of the prairies. A big thank you to my good friend Peter for letting me stay with him. Pete - your generous hospitality always makes me feel welcome.
