    I was solo (on the Vee) but linked up with this guy (on the GS) in DH. I ended up riding round trip in one shot which is why we're riding late.

    Getting a little late in the season, with a few riders traveling through town. More heading south than coming into the state. But the ones who have stuck around this long get some great views, like this one of the mountains behind Nelchina Glacier.

    What do you Alaskans consider Winter? August 15 through June 15?

    A little tongue in cheek, but not totally.

    On the HWY down to Valdez. BTW, my pictures do not do this part of the world justice. The waterfalls, color of the water, mountains, just amazing!

    When I go past that area I'm almost exactly halfway between home and Anchorage. I don't even stop at Eureka for pie and coffee any more - always in too much of a hurry (and the fact that I'm southbound before they open in the morning, and northbound long after they close at night).

    But thanks for the invite anyway.

    Hey!! Get yer butt up here and take yer own, ya lazy bum. :lol3

    I've seen enough of your photos to know you'll get some good ones, so point that red machine north some fine summer day and take a look at scenery that photos cannot begin to capture - all the way up through B.C., Yukon, and Alaska. You'll never regret it.

    Me neither, tho I will stop there for gas once in a while.

    I MUCH prefer the food just a few miles south at this place:

    Alaska has been on my mind since our ride there last summer. I hope I can return soon.



    Here are a few photos from the Dalton Highway. We were blessed with excellent weather and stunning light.
