Quotes of the day

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
- Helen Keller

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep.
- Robert Frost

Leaving Banff toward Calgary, the mountains change a bit. How?
They're all in your mirrors.  :-)
Here's the last view of mountains for this trip:

Now it looks like this:

And the temperature rose about 20 degrees.
I found a campground east of Calgary in Strathmore.
Hot Showers!
Finally - when it's 90 degrees and sunny!
The sunshine quickly dried out the wet tent.

While I found a McDonalds to update the blog, it's turned cloudy.

When I rode away from Ft. Liard, NWT, I knew I was leaving the last of the long gravel roads.
When I left the Alaska Highway, I knew it was the last I would see of the wide-open roads with no traffic.
And as I left Banff, I realized that the mountain portion of this adventure is behind me.
Time to put away the long underwear.

On to the next stage...

Life is good.
