photo friday - longview sky


I took this during a rest stop on day one of the 2009 Ride to Conquer Cancer, after pulling into a schoolyard in [Longview, Alberta](,_Alberta). This is absolutely gorgeous countryside, with rolling foothills building to the Rocky Mountains in the west. The highway is called [The Cowboy Trail](, because this is serious ranch country. Clint Eastwood shot [Unforgiven]( in the area. **Serious** ranch country.

I was crazy enough to lug the DSLR with me on the bike, with a heavy 17-35mm L lens, and was [really glad that I'd done so]( I know several people who are doing the 2011 ride (I opted out this year) and know they'll have a blast. It's a hard, painful experience, but totally worth every second.
