The road heading up Pillar Mountain, towards the three wind turbines.



Atop Pillar Mountain, looking S towards the airport and the CG Base.


Looking NE over the Pacific Ocean / Gulf of Alaska.


GINOURMOUS wind turbine. Three of 'em up here. Look closely and you'll see the Ural at the base. Very cool.

Thanks Spicy. I love that place. I had forgotten about bicycling up Pillar. That's a workout.

Yep, what they said.

Best thing about up there is the air I bet. Take a big deep breath.

Very cool.
I remember sailing out of that bay several times on the Storis.

Course sailing back in was always the best.

Took the 7 year old boy on a ride tonight. About 15 miles of pavement out to Saltry Cove Road, an unmaintained 4-wheeler road. We started back a few miles until it started getting sketchy (and late), so we turned around.

Enjoy the pics!

The beginning of Saltry Cove Road.


In case you ever wondered what the wiring of a Ural looks like. Oh, and my right knee.


The scenery is hard to handle.


Nathaniel relaxing in the sidecar.


Maybe someday, young man...! Note how the trail has deteriorated quite a bit behind us (this is on our way back out).


On the way out...


My ugly mug.


His not ugly mug.


He took this on the road back...love the bullet holes!
