This is a continuation of a blog that was part of the University of Alaska walking program. Now it includes other activities in addition to exercise such as motorcycle rides on my '83 BMW R100RT/Cozy and 2012 Ural Patrol Sidecar rigs.
We've had some wonderfully nice days since our last warm spell w/rain. The roads are a little icy but traction is decent and everyone seems to be behaving themselves. This photo was taken yesterday morning about half an hour before sunrise. Of course, I had to get the rig into the photo somehow but the highlight was definitely the sky.
Today, the waning crescent moon looked pretty cool on the southern horizon while riding in. Since I didn't have a tripod, it took quite a few attempts to get an acceptable shot especially low light, handheld with a modest telephoto. I really like these southerly views with showing the profile of the Alaska Range. And we have great visibility today. Venus was a bit further to the east out of the frame.
