    It may look different since then? Sometimes its all about the angle of the shot.

    RR 50 September 2014 when it was still accessible. A real tragedy that it is blocked off now by the ranchers beside it .

    IMG_0470.jpg

    RR. 50 just north of the halfway point. One of the longest and best former road allowances.

    Keep searching and letting curiosity be your guide. "No Exit" often means the best adventures are to be found.

    and now to find the lost 2015 archives....

    Lee, you probably have a few pics of you guys gassing up at Mountain-Aire Lodge before it got flooded out? This from Google street view (believe-it-or-not) from '09. I guess still not rebuilt, nothing left but the foundations?

    ! Mountain-Aire Lodge FTR at the Red Deer River crossing.jpg

    Edit - did some Googling, it's been bought with intention to rebuild!

    https://www.mountainviewtoday.ca/sundre-news/big-plans-for-former-mountain-aire-lodge-2118339

    And they have a website: https://mountain-aire.com/ ...stating plans are to re-open a store and gas pumps: https://mountain-aire.com/faq-and-info

    Not there yet. They had built a foundation for a new building in front of the tents in that 09 picture. It stalled there up until now. I used to buy gas there (regular only) back around 2011 but then came the flood. Only one big two story building had part of its foundation washed away and was hanging out over the river bed. The other buildings may have had water damage at ground level but appeared undamaged. I never felt compelled to take a shot at the pumps, the scene and buildings around the above-ground tanks unremarkable. The scene from the property out over the river valley very much remarkable in its beauty.

    I would welcome the return as it would help a lot of bikes that don't have the range to make Nordegg from Cochrane without having to detour over to highway 22 for fuel.

    The campgrounds along Panther river and the former cabins at Mountain Aire should again be able to support themselves. It's a beautiful area and the campgrounds have been repaired and running for years now.
