Leaving the Rockies and heading to the high plains on Hwy 507. Our destination today - Pincher Creek
Crossing Yarrow Creek
Hwy 507 with little traffic, good shoulder and pavement was simply heaven
Amazing roller coast road
It was a picture perfect day for us but looks like it could be windy out here
Mural in Pincher Creek
Hwy 6 from Pincher Creek to Waterton was even better
Aptly named "Where the Mountains Meet the Prairie"

Leaving Waterton on Hwy 6 to US border and Glacier National Park, a grueling 6 mile climb to summit @5,342'
At US/Canada border, a mule pack train was heading out to the wilderness
Reflection in Lake St. Mary
The next series of photos were taken on the Going to the Sun highway in Glacier National Park. We rode east to west to Logan Pass, a distance of 17 miles. Easy for first half then about 5% average for last 5 miles to summit.
Great t-shirt on the back of a motorcyclist at Rising Sun Cafe

At Logan Pass and it's beginning to spit. Time to don rain gear.
