Juneau, Alaska

Tuesday Morning, Alaska Marine Ferry Terminal, Juneau.

Yesterday I made it to the Alaska border and the town of Skagway, thus bicycling to Alaska from the Twin Cities for the second time, forty years after the first trip in 1967.

The ride yesterday was definitely a fitting finale to the trip. To get to the ferry terminal in Skagway in time for the voyage to Juneau, I had to battle the last big hills, strong headwinds blowing up from the Pacific, sections of bad pavement, and keep my poor legs going over one of the most scenic sections of highway in North America, paralleling the Klondike gold rush trail area of 1898.

I will be returning to Minnesota August 1. Wrap up coming later.
