A group of us rode from Anchorage to Seward to have lunch and tour one of the new tug boats the company I work for owns, which is sailing out of Seward to western Alaska soon. Joining me were ADVBMR, JustinConsistent and his female friend (whose name I don't know how to spell), Blue Rider, Justin's friend Josh. Full Power rode over from Homer and met us in Seward. From my house it's a little over 250 miles roundtrip. We encountered some rain drops between Girdwood and the base of Turnagain Pass, then the rest of the day we had sunshine with a few clouds. Not bad considering Seward gets a lot of rain! Here's part of the group at a stop in Girdwood. ADVBMR had work to do so we stopped at Turnagain Pass to view the scenery and say goodbye to him. There were quite a few avalanches. The Turnagain Pass area is pretty cool as one side of the highway is strictly for snowmachines and the other side is strictly for skiers. I spend time over here, on my backcountry skis. We didn't make many photo stops, but I did a few nice photos near Summit Lake. Here's Justin Consistent, in my rear view mirror. I really admire his riding ability and daredevil attitude! We had hoped to have lunch at a Ray's Restaurant, but it wasn't open for the season yet. I got a few photos at the harbor. This is almost a nice "mirror" photograph. I should have changed the settings on my camera. We parked our bikes on the dock right next to the tug. The captain hadn't been warned that I was coming. I wonder why the poor guy wasn't told some "bikers" were coming to invade his boat? For some reason I have problems refraining from causing mischief. Since the captain was below decks somewhere, I decided to check out some of the controls within easy reach of the fancy captain's chair. Some of the food items the crew will need for their long trip. Here we are, outside the tug, the M/V Naniq. The barge was berthed at a separate dock. A couple more photos from the Seward harbor. On the way home we stopped at Turnagain Pass. It was a spectacular day for a ride and I sure enjoyed it!
