From earlier this year. Just part of a paved road ride. Getting in condition for the upcoming season.
We are experiencing 20cm of snow today. That is almost 8 inches. I guess I won’t be riding outside today. I will have to keep all of my travels inside the confines of the garage. Looks like snow for the week. I’m going to have to find a few project to keep my mind busy and afford me some sanity while all the bikes are in the garage staring at me beckoning me to ride.
Saw this snowy owl again early this morning as I was riding by. He is farther south on RR 20 now. Closer to Mt. Joy. He watched me ride by on the Honda Varadero and bungle for my camera. I got turned around and rode past him again clicking pictures as I rode. Well,,,, none were good enough for me. I rode by again and the farmer pulled part way out of his driveway and watched me ride by again….. and again ….. and one more time. So, how does that saying go. “You gotta stop and smell the roses?” Well, I should have just stopped and clicked one off of the owl. I would have saved time for sure. Here he is. He’s pretty majestic and pretty far away.
However, I have been riding every day come rain, snow, or shine. I have posted a new video on Youtube of us descending down into the Battle River.
Today, my baby girl wants to ride. Who knows, perhaps we will go down to the river and witness a miracle.
As we made our way around in Alberta we made a few short stops in villages and did our pictorial of each one. In Hardisty AB. we found the village landmark at the end of main street and snapped this shot next to these flags.
After Hardisty we made a short jaunt to Provost to see the major flyway for geese and took this shot.
Our ride took us on several back roads and gravel roads as well as secondary highways. There is no better feeling than getting your fists in the wind.
Friday March 9th 2012. We rode the Varadero till the sun set. We had the chance to get out and ride our Honda Varaderos a little early this year. The snow was melting fast and the weather was slightly above freezing. WHAT A RIDE !!!!!
