Happy Birthday watch the sand going up to Hatcher Pass and black ice in some of the turns. At 4:00 PM it was 37* at the top and 24* close to the bottom and in the shade

Yeah

AKoffroad (Greg) rode in from Chugiak and we headed up to Hatchers. Much to our dismay the A-Frame was closed and there was a TON of snow still up there. There was lots of sand and as Hack mentioned some icy patches in the shade of the lower corners. No major problems though a pair of heated grips would have been nice. Had a sandwich and some good conversation at Turners store. It was a bluebird sunny day 40 miles of fun was had.
Maybe I'll go out again tomorrow before work
Pictures to follow.

The mine is still under many FEET of snow


Blue blue sky........ with the bikes


The A-Frame is still half buried. Nice wiew of the valley in the background



Obligitory self shot

A day late

Just checked Advrider or I would have been up for it. I'm thinking of doing a Burma Road excursion this weekend if anyone is up for it.

If your going out Burma, don't forget the pictures, go with someone, and there is no cell service out there.

Have fun
