|British Columbia - a long way from Mexico|
|The Wall ( steeper than it looks )|
|Flathead and Flathead River|
|Flathead Road - not too bad|
|This is a mess|
|Obligatory picture with big green mining truck|
|Photos just don't do the scene justice|
|Spray River system|
The morning had one more Continental Divide crossing, Elk Pass, the border between British Columbia and Alberta and I continued riding along the big power line that parallels the main road, and that was done, and then was at Boulton Creek's convenience store. Had some breakfast and rode through some of the Provincial Park until I got on the Smith Dorien road. It reminded me of a wider version of the rail trail .. lots of gravel, and dust all over the place with the dust being generated by cars doing 50 mph or so instead of ATV's.. I really hated that section of road and was glad to get off of it and onto a trail system. The rest of the day was trail system along the Spray Lake Reservoir and a little horrible piece of the Smith Dorien Road again, and then Goat Creek Trail and Spray River Trail.
So a little after 7 pm I finally got that last piece done, saw the purple line on the GPS disappear and the deed was done. My number one goal of finishing was done, and I rolled into Banff a happy rider.
