Dawson Creek, Biking

One thing I have grown to absolutely adore while out riding my bike in the Dawson Creek and the surrounding areas is the rolling fields of canola, barley, wheat, etc. I am from Vancouver Coast so this is a treat! By being in the region for the summer I have been given the opportunity to see the patchwork of crops created to bloom this time of year. I sit on one of the peaks of the hills on Sweet Water Road just north of Dawson Creek and admire the many shades of yellow (canola fields), greens and browns. The back drop of the Peace Region skies amazes me as well, clouds forming and moving in many ways and speeds. My imagination can just go wild in the sky. Not to mention while riding the back roads of the area, is also the sweet, fresh smell of the farmlands. With the views and fresh air all for free in the backyard of Dawson Creek, I am very lucky to have the opportunity to observe and experience this season here in Dawson Creek. Until next time… Happy Chains!!
