Heading into the holiest of holies unprepared physically can sure teach one a lesson. The little riding that I have been doing showed it's signs as I suffered hard through Valley of the 5 lakes, and then a trip up on the bench. A rather typical day trip to Jasper from back in the day.

The rain came today as well but the trails handled it quite well, except for a few hundred slippery rocks and roots that made the already tough riding even harder.
I was beaten hard by the trails today but I'm sitting down typing this with a big smile on my face...
