    Cool-blue Rhythm Alaska Peninsula Pugsley Pics....

    Well, I'm at my summer job out west on the Alaska Peninsula. Some funky weather, a lot of bears, and some scenery too. I brought the Pugs out with me this year for kicks and giggles, and it is performing admirably so far. Lots of black volcanic sand beaches to ride on.

    Heading out from Port Moller, riding north along the Bering Sea:



    Cutting inland to ride through the old grass covered dunes behind the beach:



    Slogging across the tundra. You do NOT want to crash here; you would never get the lowbush cranberry stains out.



    Heading back into Moller Bay, with the Aleutian Range looking on:

    Tusk tusk tusk!!!!! I see you're having to put up with that crappy maritime weather. We feel for ya! Severe clear here today too, with 25 degrees and hard frost this morning. Denali is sticking out like a diamond in a goat's arse and the bugs are froze; life is wonderful.

    Looks like sunshine to me! We're about to drown here in the arid interior. Forecast said something about 40 days and 40 nites......

    JEEZ that thing looks like fun.

    Wanna buy some pogies for it? I've got some really nice ones that I just moved around in the bike cabinet the other day. Shouldn't need 'em in Mowab this winter.

    Back in Port Moller now. The bad thing about living at sea level is that everything is uphill from there. In the background on the spit you can see Peter Pan Seafoods where our ADF&G office is located.



    Still climbing....



    Don't kill me for not wearing a helmet. I didn't bring one out because I thought I would only ride on the beaches. I have one on order.

    Ideas

    I just got back from 3 weeks on the peninsula. Spent 10 days in Aniachack National Monument and the rest in Katmai. It would make one hell of a pugsley adventure riding from Port Hieden and into the caldera, I think it would be possible. We hiked an atv trail then across even terrain up to the caldera then packrafted out to the pacific on the other side. Mind blowing place!

    Not sure on the legality of trying to bike up there though..

    You floated the Aniakchak? In a little Sherpa (or similar?)? You nut. What a cool trip. We fly over that thing on salmon surveys sometimes. That place gets the most horrific turbulence of anywhere around here. Not fun. Glad you had a good time and it all worked out smoothly. I'm not sure about the rules of riding in a National Monument either. Not like many people would be there worrying about it, I guess...

    36 CRF 2.2(a) states that there will be no smiling or overt show of enjoyment of any kind on federal lands. To wit, if it's fun, you can't do it. It's all being preserved for future generations to not smile on, too.

    Those pics are amazing, sat in an office in England, makes everything else seem a much smaller scale.
