This is the second part of my Alaska motorcycle trip. It contains nothing pertaining to motorcycles, and is solely about being a tourist in Anchorage. Below you’ll find mostly photos of glaciers taken from the sky and the ground, as well as a some frisky bears. I hope you enjoy.
You can find part 1 here, to get your motorcycle road trip fix.
Stay tuned for part 3, which resumes the motorcycle trip proper.

The Spirit of Adventure: Ascending a snowy mountain
Getting hooked (finding love again)
The R1200GS truly is an excellent do-everything bike. If you have considerable riding experience and can afford the hefty price tag, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The 2018 premium package updates are truly an improvement over previous models.

This trip was planned by others (thanks!), and with a flexible riding schedule. As such, all I really needed to worry about was getting myself in and out of Marrakech, and paying for the motorcycle rental. Not a bad deal.
After route changes, sickness, and much adventure, this is how my actual itinerary ended up:

It’s the second week of February, 2018. California has been having a horribly warm winter. I’ve been studying weather patterns every weekend for the past two months, wistful. Finally, a proper cold front has come in, alongside precipitation. Northeast CA is forecast to go below freezing the entire weekend, with some snowfall. It’s time to go.
The target: a region that wishes to secede from California and form a new state, to be known as “Jefferson”. This area also holds some of…
Last weekend I left the city pre-dawn with a mission. I’ve been visiting the Estero trail area of Pt. Reyes for the past 7 years or so, and constantly delight in it’s beauty, accessibility, and the satisfaction of hiking the area. Today I was going to experience it as the sun rose, for the first time. Not only that, but this was the first hiking test of my new camera backpack. In the pack today: A7Riii, 16–35mm f2/8, 100–400mm.
I’m hunting for landscapes both wide and intimate, and hoping to capture some of the rich wildlife I’ve seen in the…

A brief tour of some of our favorite things from the last year.
We started 2017 in Argentina. We had just visited Vero’s family in San Juan for a few weeks, before continuing on to Buenos Aires for a week, leading up to the new year.

Yelp even worked super well! Every meal was a treat, and we could have happily stayed much longer.
