Visitor biking on trail through forest

Another wonderful visit to FortWhyte at the Goose Flight sunset event. It was an awesome evening with bannock and s'mores we roasted ourselves and enjoyed the sunset while birds were landing in front of us on the lake. The sounds and the views were beautiful.
