    It is amazing how a change in weather will lift your spirits. I was not overly impressed with Alaska until I headed south of Anchorage. Wow, this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. And the weather has been perfect. No rain in days. I almost forgot where I packed my rainsuit. Now if we could just get rid of all the bugs!

    Not all my camp spots are glamorous. After the Jager bombs I found this little shelter about a block away
    A security guard found me and let me stay because he was a motorcycle guy too!

    It was probably a lot less expensive to build this hand tram across the 100 foot deep river gorge than a bridge and it was a lot more fun. I can't believe this is open to the public

    I came a across a group of girl scouts and started a snowball fight
    It was 10 against one. I got in some good shots but they were coming at me in every direction
