Castle Mountain - 51° 11' 07" N 115° 32' 53" W

Thibaud pulls away from us
Under magnificent blue skies, today's adventure was a road ride from Castle Junction to Lake Louise.  The headwind was far preferable to yesterday's drizzle and the rain has brightened the greens.  Wildflowers are out in force.  A great riding day!

Lake Louise on a sunny Summer Saturday is a gong-show!  We walked our bikes up the hill to The Chateau - it as far too dangerous to ride.  People, cars backing trying to park, kids, prams and general chaos.  The traffic was backed up past the old 1A turn-off.  The lake itself was swarming with iconic red canoes and we counted at least three weddings.  Despite the hoards, nothing can distract from the stunning beauty of the mountains and the glacier.  We even heard Thibaud utter a "wow"!

Thibaud led the charge back to Castle, and charge we did, all hitting max speeds over 60km/hr.  The magic of a downhill trend and a glorious tailwind.  In true Canadian style, it was burgers for dinner followed by s'mores and a sing-song around the fire pit.
