In my last post, I was riding towards Mt. Robson after being dropped off just after Mcbride, by my friends.
When I finally made it to the Robson Meadows campground, Mary-Jo asked me if I would like to ride another 14 km return trip to the Mt. Robson Visitor Centre down the highway a bit. As I felt like 65 km wasn't long enough for me, I joined them. After visiting the centre, we rode down to a river and did a tiny bit of geocaching. I was lucky enough to find it before the others! On our way back, I also found another geocache along the way. Haven't lost my touch.
On the 18th, we decided to go for a ride out East. The day started out promising, but by the time we rode over 20 km, it started to rain. Then one of the friends had a flat. By the time we had figured out how to change it, it was pouring, so we headed back. While riding, two semi trucks passed each other up the long hill and nearly clipped one of the riders. Usually the trucks have gap to move over.

I could have ridden to Jasper and back by myself, but this was a nice breakup to the trip and it was a lot of fun doing stuff with my friends.
In the next post, all about Jasper....
