    Denali Park. Again

    Tek to Polychrome pass. Three grizzly, several sheep, golden eagles and hundreds of migrating sandhill cranes making a wonderful racket. 31 mi with 3200feet of climbing.

    Denali Natl Park (after closing for the season).

    snow flurries - very light. started around 26F and climbed to something a small bit over freezing. Up to 20+mph wind at times. Burr. Left me cold for quite a while afterwards.
    Alaskans for global warming.

    I took a little video and precious few pics. If you want a good look at the ride, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVet90TA_AI is a short video. That video is from April 2012 with plenty of snow here and there. Here's a shot of me Sept. 17. It doesn't show much but the video gives a good look-see. My timing was perfect. It snowed like heck in Denali and here at my house. The season is done and I got in on the last day...

    I enjoyed the video a lot. Have been to Alaska twice as a tourist and love the countryside. That looks like a challenging area to ride and live in. I know you must love it though. Makes the ride I took this morning look like very boring child's play.
