Hi Mark. Good to meet you this past June.

We chanced upon Fugawi just south of Wasilla, and he took us on a tour of Hatcher Pass, but it was still socked in with snow.

Mike, he also took us by your place, but The Abbey was closed and no one was home. Sorry to have missed you.

Our ride report is linked below in my signature.

We had a great summer, thanks to Alaska's riders.

Stay warm.

Gorgeous pix, Mark, kinda makes me Homer Homesick!! It also makes me realize that i should go up and hit the Sierras around me because as rapidly as the weather is changing so will be the fall colours!!

Thanks so much for the lovely pix and i love the KLR...when did u get that??? I am slow catching up my reading!

cheers!

Nice pictures

We were up there on KLR's in May of 2004 rented from Keith in Palmer. Rode up Hatcher Pass first night, and spent the night in one of the little A-frame rooms next to the mine in one of your pictures. Late May, and the pass was still snowed in. I had a notion to ride around the gate the next morning, but decided against it since we had ten days of riding ahead.

Next morning we rode up from the other side until we hit snow and turned around. Some day, I'll go back and ride the whole thing.

Thanks for the memories.

Puke Fall pictures in Northen Utah today

I looked at your pictures this morning, then rode up to Snowbasin Ski Resort in northern Utah early this afternoon. This area is at about 7,000 feet and still looks to be quite a bit behind the Fall colors north of Anchorage. Unfortunately, it was overcast and the colors were somewhat muted.
