So it was decided to head East and go looking for new roads, preferably some gravel, and to avoid those busy highways and campgrounds.A quick glance at some backroads maps and some time digging around Alberta Parks' website, I picked Wyndam-Carseland Provincial Park as my destination.
The plan would be to use as many range and township roads as possible and if there was some gravel, even better. On the return trip, the plan was to return to Calgary on the soth side of the Bow River via Dewinton. Here are the Strava links:

|Big Sky Country. What a perfect day. Not too hot, minimal wind, glorious sunshine, and with rain a day or two before, the gravel roads were not very dusty and really well packed. in 30kms of gravel riding, I was passed by 5 vehicles. 5. So nice.|
