CCR from Edmonton

We left Edmonton this morning at 8 AM. Now having breakfast at Deans in Gasoline alley. Nice blue skies, some overcast, good riding temps. So far one coyote and a deer. Just slab riding for now, glad to be on our way.

Re: CCR from Edmonton

We crossed the border at 3:30, no problems, the man was pleasant and it went smoothly. Had a lunch break in St Marys, great burger.
The east side of the lake looks like a barren moonscape from the pine beetle kill. The west side is beautiful, only 12 miles to the summit saw some bighorn sheep and a brown bear. The worst part were the chickenshit drivers.
We made it to whitefish Montana by 6:30. We got further than expected
Thanks to Darius floorboards, LD spanks,,a better fitting helmet for wife and a lack of rain and cold. A good and pleasant day.

Tomorrow will be an easy day.
