Crimson Lake, not red at all

David Thompson Resort to Crimson Lake

Day 16 (89 miles)

The ordeal of cowboy poetry was momentarily abandoned in favour of a Cowboy Breakfast and then back on the road for a swift escape. The rolling road and tailwind takes us through Nordegg for lunch and then one last chance to wave farewell to the rocky mountains before pulling into Crimson Lake Provincial Park for the night.

Are opinion on the facilities provided is sought and answered with a long indictment of the lack of consideration for cycling tourists. You have to take these chances when you can really.
