Another longer day with temps over 100F taking in Butte Montana and paying homage to Evil Knieval, open farmland, and the cool old westen Virgina City. Today’s destination is Red Lodge Montana.
It is really noticeable that we are moving out of the mountains as the temperature today rose quickly to over 30 degrees. Today we enjoyed just being out there and rolling through big sky Montana soaking in the landscape changes as the big Harley burbles underneath us.
I’m running out of adjectives. The scenery continues to amaze us and blow us away. This ride has been awesome.!
From Waterton we are only a short distance from the US border as we head to a small town I think I could call home … Whitefish. Today we rode through Glacier NP, and had lunch by Lake McDonald.
From Banff we made our way through the Kananaskis mountains to Waterton Lakes. As I rode today I just kept thinking that it feels like we are riding through postcard photos. Just spectacular.
I remember seeing a picture of Banff’s mainstreet as a kid and just being blown away … and today we’ll be there! I can’t believe it.
Today was just wow. Amazing scenery, mountians, picnicing by glacier lakes, waterfalls, and we saw a bear!.
Today the scenery really started to change with the mountains looming and we were never that far from the beautiful aqua coloured rivers as we enter Jasper National Park. Today’s stops included the Spahats Falls, Avola, Rearguard Falls, and Mout Robson Park before getting to overnight accommodation at Jasper.
Today we ride from the beautiful little town of Winthrop to Canada with a lunch stop at the lakeside town of Peachland. Today was about covering miles and a good opportunity to start getting accoustomed with the Harley as it so different to my ZX14R (ZZR1400)!
Traveling with an Eaglerider tour group is quite different as all you need to do is ride and enjoy the scenery as they take care of all the rest.
