    I finished a 3400 mile trip to Nova Scotia recently. NS has incredible scenery and incredibly friendly people! Since there have been dozens of ride reports for NS already, I'll dispense with the babbling and post the best photos from the trip.

    Packed up and ready to go.

    Next time I need to remember to take my helmet off when taking self portraits.

    An awesome empty road on the Western Coast. The locals said the road was really rough but it was fine by US standards. The scenery of the coves along the way was great. I wish I got more photos but it rained a bit that day.

    I practically disappear into the bike:

    I've never seen mud like this before. If you fell in you'd disappear.
