Goat forgot the stove pump and we were forced to magically will fires into being in the cold, wet, arctic tundra so we could cook our primarily dried food
Sean was the first victim
Wandering around on Alaska's varicose vein pumping 28,000 gallons of oil per minute
Not quite sure what to think of this one
Goat and Sean contemplating the mysteries of life.
Our first test, a 5,000 foot snowy pass
Approaching with apprehension
Fearlessly conquers the pass.
Further evidence that duct tape can fix just about anything.
Maybe a first for the locals of Coldfoot to see somebody bike through barefoot. He claims his feet were not cold, despite the particular locale we were occupying.
Another day, another hill
Neverending sunsets here in Alaska
Humungous river where we soaked our sore legs.
Purple mountains majesty
Chased a motorcycle, huh? How about a bicyclist?
Crossing an imaginary line is worth a picture
Left his wife, kids and job to travel around America on his beautiful BMW motorcycle
A friend we met near the most northern (cut down but duct taped back together) Spruce tree along the Alaskan Pipeline. Mike was an awesome character to encounter. We wished he was heading the same direction as us. He teaches in Seattle at school devoted to homeless youth populations. Check out his website and his travels at www.mikelikebike.com
Otherwise known as a long steep hill
Nice place to take a quick dip.
Rumor has it there were Dall sheep up there, but I couldn't see any

Our Russian friends who snuck us into an "Employee Appreciation" dinner @ Denali Park.
He was not home when we went to visit.
Can never really eat enough
A relic of the past
A family trying to catch a meal that has travelled over 2,000 miles to spawn
What we will look like if we get lost.
Swirling river under a beautiful Alaskan Sunset
Outside of Tok in the Alaskan wilderness
A picture is worth less than a thousand words
Slackers who didn't make it into the border before it closed
Hopefully they'll let three haggard cyclists through
