Day Ride: Hatcher Pass, AK

We started the day with a hike in the woods. I brought my camera not expecting to see a moose again but what we saw was even better. A moose just gave birth to a calf probably a few hours before. COOL!

Later on we took a ride stopping in Eklutna Lake, one of Mark’s favorite places to go kayaking and mountain biking in the fall.

Then we took off toward Hatcher Pass, we couldn’t go all the way to the pass because there was a blizzard here a week ago and the pass was still closed, we got just a couple miles short of the pass. The scenery and roads were pretty amazing.

Near Hatcher Pass we ran in to guy on a red Daytona , it was Les, one of Mark's friends, we all went to Mother Lode for dinner, sitting outside on the deck in the sunshine and 70’s temperatures.
