Forestry Trunk Road – Calgary -> Highwood House -> Blairmore/Coleman

Had a chance to ride with an old VFR riding buddy – Paul. We both toured together a few times on our VFRs and have since switched to the same type of bike again – the Africa Twin.

This ride is ‘short’ in comparison with last summer’s 15,000 kilometres across Canada to PEI. It will also allow visiting some small First Nations/Indigenous…
