Made it back from "the wild" and am heading north...

This will be brief because I'm just at a gas station... Figured I would quickly upload a few pics from my last 3 nights backpacking in Denali Wilderness.... The place surely is wild and for now I'll leave it at just that...

Back from Kenai docks, Homer, and Kenai Fjourd Nnational Park

Back in Anchorage for a night or two... The Kenai Fjourd Nnational Park and other areas I have just come from loaded my cameras up with video and photos so I figure it is only right to share a few....

This is a photo of the further point west that one can drive/ride in Alaska

Call me an artist for the day because the photo I took through a telescope IS rather cool eh? 

The boats that didn't make it but still look awesome (On the spit out of Homer, AK

I kept riding out of Homer, down East End Rd., and did a short hike up at  Eyesight State Park

My favorite muddy fisherwomen friend, Michelle....

Rolling down into the park with the sun nice and bright



Make sure you remember step #2 of if a grizzle bear attacks....

And, yup, I made it back to the tropics

But a rather cold tropics....
And as the night came along, (Photo taken at about 11:00PM), so did more rain... and the rain has drizzled on... and on... and on... Nevertheless I will soon push further north and do my best to find the sun. 

I may now really disappear for some time to come.... So wish me some sun as ride into the clouds....

Lands end

Here I sit for a momment at The end of a spit in Homer,  Alaska and I figured I would share a quick photo....

Tonight I shall return to kenia to spent time, and camp with my friend Michelle. Then I'll be off to visit Exit glacer and the harding ice fields...

Oh also included is a photo of my friendly couchsurfer host, Kevin , just after catching his first salmon of the night...

Catch ya'll later

Off to Kenai

Off to the Kenai area...  Here is a link that will give you an idea of what is to come....
http://www.kenaipeninsula.org/

I'll be meeting up with a couple Couchsurfers and also my good friend Michelle (If I can find her). I'm guessing I'll be in the Kenai area for 2 or 3 nights and when I come back north I'll stop in Anchorage for a night or two and then head north to Denali National Park..

I'd try to share more pics and video right now but, especially with the slow internet, its just creating a bit to much of a delay from just actually starting the next leg of experiences.

The in-betweens from Stewart to Anchorage

On the road to Salmon Glacier and then to.... Well I really don't know..

I'm suspecting I may not have another chance to update for a couple days.... but when I do the photos should be rather amazing... So check back soonish...

Off to Hyder rain or shine...

Well it seems I have been racing a storm for some time now and the thing just keeps catching up with me each time I sleep. I suppost this part of the ride is a great analogy for life... that is to say, when things are "crappy", or just look and/or seem that way, one must keep riding through. Without knowing hope (the sun) is just within reach behind a thin, ok maybe thick, layer of wet clouds..

I'm pretty sure I'm going to take off soon after I munch up my backpacker oats special.... I'm just wishing I had some whiskey handy to first thin my blood...

Anyhow today will be another day with not to many pics due to rain but I will try and here are a few to get you started.....

Arrival at Stewart, Canada and a walk to Alaska


<p>Well let me start by saying I have 3 days of blogs, photos, and videos to share but the internet service that I have been coming accross barely is letting me upload this text. So for now this is it and hopefully tomorrow I can snag a quicker connection and upload the rest.
<p>Ps. Yes I really did walk to Alaska AND back to Canada too. From stewart to hyder and back...</p>


Franky has fallin in love...... :)
