The Great Outdoors (PBC October 2020)

I can think of at least three good reasons Photo Blogging Challenge host PJ went with the Great Outdoors for October's theme. First, chief medical officers keep telling us to head outside for daily exercise (while social distancing, of course). Second, it's a broad theme, which hopefully means more participants. Finally, reading all participating posts will be like a mini vacation with stops around the world!

Glenmore-Reservoir

Glenmore Reservoir Circumnavigation

One easy and scenic riding option in Calgary is circumnavigating the Glenmore Reservoir, a route that runs 15 or 16 km. The city's extensive pathway system makes it easy to extend the distance. Mr. GeoK and I covered 31 km riding from home, around the Reservoir, and back. Heritage Park, sailboats, and the view of the Canadian Rockies to the west add visual interest to the ride. If you're lucky (and alert) you might even spot some water birds, a deer or a coyote.
