    Last Trip in 2010

    Hi everyone this is our last trip that my wife and I did this year it was in September from 1st to the 5th. Our route was from Edmonton to Crowsnests Pass to Nakusp then Revelstoke and finally back home to Edmonotn.

    Our first day we didn't any pictures because we had done this route many times, here is a photo of our bike before leaving.

    You can only upload a single picture through the forum browse software (that little paper clip at the top of the edit screen), but you can put many links in your posts which directly displays the photos. From smugmug, it appears you go to the "Share" then "Get a Link" at the upper right side. Then click on "Embeddable Links" and click the button to Copy the medium size picture link. This copies the link to the clipboard. Back in the forum, then paste the link from the clipboard back into your post. Include some text between each successive picture and Bob's Your Uncle. At least, that's the way it's supposed to work. You might have to experiment with the size of picture.

    Highwood pass AB

    Coffee break with a taste of sun


    Running from the storm


    Frank's slide


    Camp site for the night. I had ask what the weather was going to be "20 plus for the rest of the week and no rain", well it rained before we had time to setup our tent.


    Our camp site was just west of Crowsnest Pass.


    This is the route we covered on day 2 400 km

    Day 3

    First of all Thanks Kurt as you can see I am posting more than 1 photo.

    Well day three took us from Crowsnest, AB Pass to Nakusp, BC via the Gray Creek pass in BC, a must do. The pass will not save you any time but the ride is well worth the time detour.

    This is the route we took.


    In the morning everything is frozen, our tent is full of ice.


    Yes it as been done a million times over, but......


    Me trying to get breakfast going when everything is frozen


    My wife, Josee, was so cold she started her bike and "plugged" herself in (heated vest)


    Stopped at Sparwood to see the Mighty Titan


    Little me in front


    Old coal mining chain saw


    Took a break on the road to Grey Creek pass


    My wife


    On the west side of the pass, long way down


    Looking back at the pass


    On the ferry crossing lake Kootenay


    What a view


    What a view 2


    The other ferry

    It was a long day of riding to get 423 kms done but well worth it, in the end we get a hotel room in Nakusp and a hot meal at the local restaurant.
