On Saturday I did a little day trip on my Vespa to Drumheller, AB. I mostly ride by myself but it was good to do this trip with my friend Greg and his BMW motorcycle. It was wonderful to have Tracy with us and she followed in her car... but unfortunately non of the photos of her car made it into the blog post.

The ride to Drumheller from Airdrie is pretty boring, there is nothing really to see on the way, but when you do get there you can see some interesting landscapes.

Our goal was to visit Last Chance Sallon, unfortunately when we arrived there we found out that it was closed. It was a pretty interesting road to get there, full of bridges and interesting landscapes, made it for a nice ride anyway :)

We stopped to see some hoodoos, too bad that they are building a bunch of metal pathways and viewing platforms. I guess it's good to preserve the hoodoos but now it makes it hard to take natural photos without metal constructions getting in the way. While there it was funny that a little boy called Greg a "Power Ranger" seeing his bright jacket and helmet :)

I don't know if it was very windy or what, but my LittleGuy went though lots of fuel to get there and back, so my gas milage wasn't that great. Still, it was a great ride and I can't wait to do more :)
