We just completed a 4-week, 5,300-mile international motorcycle tour that had us visiting clients and conducting programs across 11 States of the USA, 5 Provinces of Canada, numerous State and National Parks, and a variety of unique resorts and villages.
We departed Dallas, June 26, 2009 going north through Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota, crossing into Ontario, Canada, at International Falls, Minnesota. After 6 enjoyable days of fishing, outdoor exploring, and outward bound experiences on Lake of the Woods, south of Kenora, we ventured on west through Winnipeg, Manitoba, across the magnificent plains of Saskatchewan, to the bustling metropolis of Calgary, Alberta. Attending the historic, renowned Calgary Stampede was remarkable, “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!,” and enjoy a “sampling” of the many photos taken along the way.
Canmore, Banff, and Lake Louise…especially Banff and Jasper National Parks…are glorious sites! Traveling by motorcycle, you experience it all…sounds, sights, smells, temperature changes, rain, wind, sunshine…deer, bears, foxes, elk, buffalo, eagles, pelicans, etc.! We traveled up over the Continental Divide through the Rocky Mountains, down to Radium Hot Springs and Cranbrook, British Columbia, dodging a hailstorm here and there, to the quaint crossroads stopover at Elko, BC.
From BC, it was south through Glacier National Park in Montana, Whitefish, Great Falls, and Livingston…then into Wyoming, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to Jackson Hole and Rock Springs…through the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area to Dutch John, Utah, to view brother, “Senator Chub Foreman’s,” work in constructing the magnificent Flaming Gorge Dam many years ago.
From Utah into Colorado through Dinosaur, Rangely, Grand Junction and Montrose to the fabulous villages of Ouray, Silverton, and Durango, we experienced hairpin switchbacks, mountains, waterfalls, rivers, and streams. At Pagosa Springs, we enjoyed the bubbling hot mineral baths.
Chama, New Mexico, is a charming village with lots of neat little riverside cabins and the historic Cumbres & Toltec railway that takes you up through the passes and colorful canyons, across bridges and streams to old mining and lumber camps. Then we explored on south through the Carson National Forest, Chimayo, Pojoaque and Tesque to the quaint pageantry of Santa Fe, where we enjoyed fresh roasted corn, tacos and goodies on the Plaza.
From Santa Fe to Las Vegas, NM, across the grassland ranches, to Tucumcari to Amarillo, Texas, Childress, Vernon and Wichita Falls, and back into Dallas…what fun, adventure and excitement…but it’s good to be back home for a few days…then the adventure continues!
