100 km skate and wildlife
Yesterday I skated 100 km from the Banff Gate (west of Canmore) to Castel Mountain Junction Hwy #1 and Hwy 93 in 4 hrs and 10 min. It was a beautiful day and the view like always spectacular. (Check out the pictures on Google Earth.) My husband met me at the half way point with water and more GU ROCTANE GEL (the only gel I can take without making to much of a face) :) Needless to say, that on the way home, I had to fight some head wind. :( I had to laugh; there was a park warden with his truck on the same route checking on wildlife… Was he checking the wildlife in the woods or the one on the hwy…? He stopped at all the crossings and frequent used passages, every 10 km or so, that made me feel pretty safe. There are a lot of Bears and Cougars in the area.
