It doesn't look like Butler has products covering BC and Alberta. We have some time working our way to the UnRally, and I was thinking about heading that way and getting a little off the beaten track (99-Whistler, Icefields Parkway and Alaska Highway being the track we've beaten).

What do you use for maps in Western Canada? Any suggestions for scenic riding, moto camping, hiking? Other places of interest?

Near the mine, Utah
Be aware of the heavy downpour Tstorms around EDM and CGY in summer (something about seeding). Great for getting a bike clean though.

Alberta Canada
Jan:

The best source for BC (and I think better than Butler in some ways for Washington) is Destination Highways. They also include campgrounds, motorcycle dealers, traffic avoidances etc.

I could courier mine to you if they can't deliver them in time.

Nothing similar for Alberta, but everything interesting that is paved in Alberta you already know about. Particularly Highwood Pass and the "Cowboy Trail" (AB 22). Maybe consider parts of the International Selkirk Loop.

I wish I could be 1/4 the rider this bike deserves.
