Mountains, Rainbows and Rivers Make All This Pedaling Worthwhile

The last week of cycling was physically tough as we hit the mountain passes with sore butts and less-than-fresh legs. It was also tooootally worth it for the simply amazing countryside we had the pleasure of traversing thanks to Glacier and Waterton Parks in Montana and Alberta, Canada.

Here are a few choice recent shots, plus one of us to prove we’re still together and happy. 😉 The last is one of my new favorites – it captures the joy that exploring via bike is all about. Enjoy!

Late bloom this far north up in Canada at Waterton Lake. (The mosquitoes practically carried me off as I took this picture...)

    Hmmm, second try here. You’ve given me my morning smile. First the incredibly beautiful picture of the flowers and then the ones of Chelsea and the rainbow and you two. Happy pedaling!

        Style is everything, especially when riding! I’m in the NW part of New Jersey, close to the Delaware Water Gap. Picturesque too, but not nearly as much as the Rocky Mountains (in my humble opinion). 🙂

          The Rockies are tough to beat, that’s for sure. New England has its share of charm and beautiful views for sure though! Perhaps we’ll come through your area and say hi sometime. The east coast will be under our wheels sooner or later… 🙂

            The East Coast is definitely tougher to cruise through – definitely not as many quiet roads out here, but you guys are welcome anytime (provided you’re not allergic to cats!) 🙂

    I’ve been to Going-To-The-Sun road! We went to Montana a year ago. That was a really tiny road! So scary to drive on. There was no shoulder at all. There were so many cars and everyone was driving so slowly, the line of cars had to be at least a half mile long. But the view along the way and at the top was so worth it!

    Thanks,
