We said goodby to Vavenby at 7:15 am. Our average km per day for the trip is 175km. Today was that distance. It was an up hill day as we moved closer to the Rocky Mountains. The road was a gradual up hill march all day. We had overcast sky for most of the day. Rain moved in for about an hour.
It was a day filled with beautiful views… We crossed paths with 3 black bears, a deer and caught a glimpse of a moose. Sorry no pictures. It is a little unsettling seeing a bear about 5 meters away when you are on a bike! The only other wide life sighting were on day 3 when we managed to spook a herd of about 20 big horn sheep.
We finished the day riding into Valmount at about 6:30 pm. As soon as we got in town we did a TV interview for a local television. Then had a wonderful potluch dinner at the Mountain Driftwood Guest House with our hosts and people from the community.
