ALASKA (not) TOUR JULY 2007

THE F11 KEY WILL GIVE YOU FULL SCREEN FOR BEST VIEWING

Chinese philosophers would have us believe that "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."  A 9000 mile two up motorcycle camping trip from Fort Worth Texas to Alaska begins with a little more preparation.  Earnest planning started in January.

The basic concept; go straight west to the coast, hug the coast north to Vancouver, pass inland across British Columbia to connect with the alcan in the Yukon Territory then a scenic loop in Alaska.  The return trip would take us the entire length of the alcan into Alberta. We planned to see Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff, Glacier and Yellowstone.  We would need to average 320 miles per day to make the trip in the 30 days we had off work in July.

The following photo journal chronicles that best laid plan and it's astray, but still wonderful, execution.
