August Long Weekend. Another nice day for a bike trip to Kananaskis Country. This time we drove further upto Highwood River area, Highway #541.

We took a short break at our favorite stop by Barrier Lake for a quick bite, then proceeded to Kananaskis Village for a leisurely walk. We then drove further for over an hour enjoying the twisties, the scenery, the smell of fresh pine (oh, how we love that smell), pulling over at every points of interests, and even stopping for wild animals (these guys rule!). We took short breaks at Highwood Meadows and Sentinel Creek, occassionally chatting with other bikers.

Our trip heading back home was a surprise. As we hit TransCanada Highway, the traffic was bumper to bumper. Thinking that there was probably an accident somewhere ahead, we decided to pull over the road side and just sat on the grass watching commuters go by. Minutes later, a cop thought we had an accident pulled over to check if we were ok. After half an hour, the traffic started easing up. So off we go again, but at 20Kph halfway to Calgary. As it turned out, there was no traffic accident - the highway was just overwhelmed by commuters heading home from a long weekend trips.
