6/24/2019 While loading the bikes we meet two brothers from Edmonton, Canada who had just rode the Dempster on a 1200 GS and a Vstrom 650. They were headed for Valdez before riding home. We shared our thermos of coffee with them that the restaurant had given us the night before. While we had been eating dinner the owners asked if we wanted breakfast in the morning but since the restaurant wouldn’t open till 9am they had given us the thermos of coffee and some fruit. I had been told the ride into Valdez over Thompson’s Pass was one of Alaska’s prettiest rides. I can say what we saw was stunning. The cloud ceiling was low and thick, and at times visibility was very poor and we couldn’t even see what we were passing on the side of the road. We just made our way along slowly hoping someone didn’t come up from behind till we were out of the cloud bank.
