I took a slow start today in hopes the rain would dry out on the tent fly. Even hanging the fly out to dry didn’t finish drying. At 1:00, I headed into town.
When I saw the four big ships, the sidewalks were crawling with people and there were crossing guards handling the crosswalks. A quick drive through town was enough for me
I enjoyed a drive and hike near the Mendenhall Glacier.
I drove north to the end of the road enjoyed some great riding with the curves hugging the coastline. I stopped at the St. Terese shrine on the way.
I finished drying out my tent in the sunshine at a pullout on the side of the road and enjoyed chatting with a couple of local bikers. While not a long ride. this is an enjoyable ride as there is little traffic.
On the way back, I stopped for a beautiful sunset and watched a bear fishing in the stream.
