You'd never know it from the car shunpiking adventure we did on Sunday. Roads that are marked in the current atlas as pavement dissolve into gravel at random, and unless it's a major road, you're lucky if you even get something resembling a shoulder. Not the sort of roads I'd want to be riding on two wheels with.

That being said, some fabulous scenery to be had, traversing between the flat plains and the aspen woodland ecosystems, riding across the South Saskatchewan River on a little cable ferry, etc.

This is one of the shots from the pano I'll stitch together when I get back to my real 'puter. (Mirabile dictu, it worked!)

Something about that open plain that is relaxing. I remember going to Red Deer via the short cut and driving the truck along on two lanes with over sized flatbeds hauling big Cat bulldozers coming the other way. Not a lot of room between those ditches I'll say.

I do miss it in a small way. Though I don't even want to visit again. The East has changed me to a city boy.

Thanks for sharing the pic. Smile

Oh Bleat!
