No matter how many times I ride through here, I never get bored of it! It is the most scenic day on Tour De Jasper. I decided to have a little bit of fun!
I got to go back to hike behind Mt. Robson again one day soon, as it's even more scenic on the other side.

We all enjoyed some ice cream at the base of Mt. Robson. As we were leaving, I noticed someone had left their phone behind. I showed Nicole it and she found out who's phone it was. The word was spread down the line, so the person knew where it was. I am glad that I noticed it..

One of the rest stops was at Moose Lake. It is a scenic place for a rest stop after the hot climb out of the Robson area, and it's hard to leave it! I waited for Nicole - the trip organizer- to catch up. She was riding this day and I was worried when she didn't catch up to me. She had dropped something and went back for it. She somehow hurt herself at that time. She stopped at a road construction site for some first aid attention. She caught up to us at Moose Lake.
I rode mostly on my own, but I did end up riding with these ladies and their grandfather. He is the oldest person that's ridden on the tour. Like in previous years, we rode to the campsite directly. I didn't really feel like spending in town, but rather with good company at the group campsite. I love riding with all the riders every year, and this year was no exception. It was a fun group to spend my week with! The highlight of the days (beside the ride) was sitting around the campfire them after a long day's ride.
It felt good to make it to Jasper, once again. What a thrill! Am I bored or done with it? Nope, I'm already thinking of next year.
