I was working up in Fairbanks all month so I decided to visit the big guy, Denali. I had a 30 mile peddle in and out of a clear mountain the whole time. Here is a few photos.
A trip through Denali on bicycle last weekend.
Wow!! Gorgeous pictures!!! Glad you had fun peddling around up there. One of these days I may get lucky and get to visit Alaska.
how neat! sounds like a wonderful trip! can't believe all the animals that you saw and how close some of them were to you. the wolf is something i would like to see. i once heard them howling while visiting the sawtooth wilderness in idaho, but never saw them. thanks for sharing all you neat pics. sounds like you had a great time.
I have heard many also but it is rare that you see them. I think because the park just opened they were still by the road system. The coyotes were out last night here in Montana so I went out and howled with them. They were quite excited to hear a strangers voice. They kept talking back while I howled. Oh so did the neighbor dogs. : () Hoooooooowwwwllll.
LOL. I would have been either laughing my head off or howling along with you. I can't decide.
Wow - great shots Steve. You are so lucky. I hope to get there one day. Thanks for sharing.
Breathtaking pics, thanks for sharing. When's the book coming out?
It is never cold in Alaska. Cold is Seattle enroute wet and 40F vs -37 in Anchorage this spring. Fairbanks in May is perfect. 70's and lows in 40's. Way too much sun though! I love the darkness since I have come home.
yes, that would drive me nuts too, having the sun up almost all day. but think how much stuff you could get done in one day. on the other hand, the darkness in winter would probably drive me more nuts and i would just feel like hibernating, not getting anything done. i am sure it is something one up there would have to get use to.
I wouldn't mind dealing with the darkness for a few months, the summers are worth every dark day.I would love to see aurora's in alaska. Ive only seen them twice but they were not anything like the ones in the arctic.
What a marvelous adventure, exploring alone with just those critters! What an experience, thanks for taking me along in the photos!
I want to go to Fairbanks next winter to see the Aurora. It must be fantastic. I will be too far south this winter working in Juneau and Sitka. The extremely short days cause me to get "SADS" and I would need to get out after a few weeks of total darkness.
Thank you for your compliment. Yes it was a wonderful time visiting Denali.
