We got caught in winds that even freaked out the locals. Apparently it's been getting worse every year. That's how we ended up in Swift Current. Found a room, liquor store, bar and a restaurant all attached. MAN that's fate. By now we've been through some crazy weather and put in a couple 700+km days. Finally starting to FEEL it. Next day we saw mountains. Every ache pain and bitchable moment evaporated. The first stop was emotional. We were in an amazing place and all was right with the world at least for a moment. From then on it was endless views that after a few double "wows" would leave you speechless. We were fresh and ready all over again. Hard to describe, it really has to be experienced. Our final stop was over booked so we headed for Yoho which wasn't even on the route. That caused another 600+Km day. Had a minor tumble in a muddy construction zone during a heavy storm but finally got to a camp site wet tired and hungry. Good times.
1st view worth every mile, 1st stop was epic, The 40 a gravel pass into Canmore, Epic views and epic pot holes. This is where the chain guard got mangled. Sue kept the camera busy.
