It's been too long....

Wow, it feels like forever since my feet have been in my hiking boots!! Sunday was such a great day - I spent it with four fabulous gals, wandering along the Bighorn Canyon and ending up at Crescent Falls.

It felt so good to be outside, and to really stretch the legs and breathe some seriously fresh air! My summer has been.... tumultuous, to say the least.... and the opportunity to clear my head and my soul was long overdue.

More of the same is on the agenda for this weekend. Friday, I am spending the day with some amazing friends out west of Nordegg, and Sunday the plan is to meet up with a fellow hiker along the Icefields Parkway. I can't wait!!

Hope all is well for everyone!

I think it's time...

I now have nearly 1800km on my Sportster, and I put over 400km on my mom's (yep, she has one too!!)... so I think it might be time for me to go get a bike license, no?! Hee hee!

I can't believe how much I love riding. The smells, the feeling, the freedom! Why I didn't do this twenty years ago, is beyond me. I never imagined it would be such a rush! My new wheels have covered several leisurely miles of back roads around Central Alberta, plus I've been riding to work as much as I can. Soooo fun!!

If you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes!

Good ol' prairie BUGS!!

Last weekend, I rode in a poker run down in Medicine Hat. Over sixty motorcycles showed up for the event, and we had an absolute blast! The weather could not have been more perfect and I met many great people.

What a stellar day!
I like shiney things...
Nothing better than the open road!

I am looking forward to getting a bit more gear so I can plan a full-on road trip. Another biking friend and I are talking the Oregon Coast in September... Mmmmm.... how beautiful will that be! Can't wait!!
