Back to New York. Unfortunately, weather meant that a couple of meetings I had hoped for were cancelled, but also managed to catch up with one friend I haven’t seen in a while and spontaneously joined a hot chocolate tour. There was also lots of other food.
This isn’t the kind of travel this blog was originally set up for. In fact, it feels weird to write an “adventure” blog about “home,” but it also seems odd to visit and not write about it at all.
I thought two difficult motorcycle trips this summer would mean that the third time might be the charm.
I didn’t get soaked and frozen this time, but “charm” probably doesn’t describe it either.
Jasper to Kamloops is beautiful riding, first on BC16 to Valemount, then down 5 to Kamloops. Enjoyed the views, but didn’t stop much once I passed Mt. Robson. That’s another area I’d like to come back to and it will have to be a different trip.
The weather remained “unsettled” as it has been for much of the trip, with clearing promised in the afternoon. As on previous days, I was tempted to dunk myself into the cold water where I could, but the weather wasn’t quite warm enough.
I rode northeast on the Trans-Canada, initially in the direction I came from, but I turned north onto the Icefields Parkway near Lake Louise. Weather was variable, at times chilly, but mostly pleasant enough despite the overcast and occasional haze.
