I left Palmer and headed up Hwy. 1, the Glenn Highway and the Tok Cutoff back to the Alcan and south to Haines Junction.
A very nice little place to stop (as long as the wildelife is still on the salad course) after some more fantastic scenery and great roads (you getting tired of hearing that?). I was on my way to Haines to catch the ferry back to Bellingham, Washington (figured I deserved the rest and relaxation after a lot of riding). It was a great ferry ride with lots of scenery (sorry), but about two days too long. I met two fellow riders, Cody (BMW GS) and Gary (Harley) and they, along with the adult beverages we brought aboard made the trip seem a little less long.
It was actually a really nice cruise (the parts I remember). :=)
Got to Bellingham around 9:00 AM and made it to Spokane on some great motorcycling roads with great scenery (again sorry). I told several people that the only thing missing were the snow covered mountains.
Making my way toward Billings Montana, and the National H.O.G. Rally.
