Alaska Denali Highway Trip

My wife and I just finished a trip across the Denali Highway (unpaved) then along the Parks Highway and back down to Anchorage. All told, 365mi, 6 days, fully loaded with our trusty CoMotions, Ortlieb panniers and Tubus racks and 32's. Great combo. The unpaved Denali Highway is absolutely gorgeous with stunning mountain views, wildlife and friendly people along the way. We have ridden this wonderful route with mountain bikes in the past. This was our first try using touring bikes. It's a challenge but great fun.

Here are a few pics, although the quality is poor because they are just phone snapshots. I highly recommend the trip.













Have fun!

Bikes: Specialized Tarmac Expert, 2002 TREK 520, Schwinn Mesa WINTER BIKE, Huffy Rock Creek 29er, 1970s-era Ross ten speed. All my bikes are highly modified(except the Tarmac) yet functional, and generally look beat to ****. .

Thanks for the offer! My better half is a photoshop whiz but we have been so busy riding there isn't time for much editing. Some day we will get to work on the images.
