Riding The Bow River

It’s been pretty cold lately up until today and the Bow has frozen up nicely providing yet another amazing place to ride my fat bike.  I’ve been riding up to Sundance Lodge as well and of course stopping at the igloo to finish up my rides.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year so far!

Fat Biking In Banff National Park

I have been riding a lot so far this winter and Kirstie has been out on the trail with me a few times now and took some photos of where I ride.  I recently put up a post about my experience fat biking in Banff over on Canoe Wedding.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to the winter season!

Kirstie’s Stories Featured on Steller Stories

Kirstie and I have both been enjoying a new app that allows us to put our photos together into a story format.  It’s a new social media but one that we feel much more comfortable with and has a lot of potential on the creative side of things.  It seems to be less about a popularity contest and more geared towards creating creative content and storytelling.  We really enjoy being able to put all of our photographs into a story format.  When we go out and take photos we are telling a story of our day, our hike, or whatever adventure or assignment we may be on.  This is a great app to put all the photos together to really tell the story of the day.  Please have a look at Kirstie’s recent stories in the last few days.  I feel like she has been putting together some really amazing photo stories and great archives for ourselves.  You can find her here: https://steller.co/orangegirl  She just did a wonderful story on our two amazing pups Leroy and Mabel as well as many more.  I will be updating and creating more stories in the time being as well and will do a post about that in the near future, but if you get a moment to wander through some of my wife’s beautiful stories, please do, I promise that it’s a million times better than sitting and watching TV.

Thanks so much and I hope that you enjoy.

Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is a very popular place for tourists and locals alike to flock to in the late spring, summer, and early fall months.  It is very easy to see why so many people travel to the lake daily, hundreds of people can be there all at once.  The wilderness is raw all around the lake but when the tour buses are rumbling about and the rock pile is full of people it can be a little hard to fully take in the serenity of this place without noticing the spectacle of people, at least for me anyways.  Today I had an entirely different experience with Moraine Lake.  An experience I will no doubt ever forget in my lifetime.  The road is closed now for the season and has been since Thanksgiving.  It was 15 degrees out there today and I took to my bicycle.  Sometimes snow is already piling up on the road right as they close it, but not this year.  The road provided for a perfect ride and I was literally the only person out there.  Just me and Moraine Lake!  It was a little hard to fathom it to be honest.  What a transformation and I’m sure a welcome break for the ecosystem of this area.  I took a few photos along the way.
