Next morning, I woke up and packed up after eating my breakfast. I said goodbye to all those whom I had met at the campsite and headed on my way to the Columbia Icefield. As the day before, I was only going to be riding 50 km. It would give me plenty of time, to reach the Icefield and give me extra time afterwards to explore the area.
Again, the weather was very good, not too hot, but not rainy. I took my time riding towards the pass. I met a cyclist from Boston along the way, who was headed to Jasper. He had a home built chain gard on his Breezer bicycle.

Along the way, I got some motorcyclists from the USA to take a photo of me by the Columbia Icefield sign...One of the cylists was named Jack.

I then rode to the Icefields Centre where I met other cyclists and a person who was so fascinated that I rode all by myself. I ate an expensive lunch as I didn't feel like cooking and then headed to the campsite to set up camp. I bumped into more British Army guys who were being trained to walk on glaciers. I had met some the last time I came through on my bike, with Jim.
Before heading to bed, I had time to go walk up to the Columbia Icefield and also to take some amazing evening shots of the area. The next morning, I would decide what to do next, head back to Jasper or continue on....
