On our second day`s riding we had clear blue skies and we started to get glimpses of Mount Denali looking awesome off in the distance. Such an impressive mountain towering over everything else around it! Some people we were chatting with at a rest stop told us we were very lucky for the mountain doesn`t come out from the clouds too often!! Well, that justified stopping at a viewpoint along the way for the World`s Largest Hot Fudge Sundae. Sweet.
The country that we rode through on the Parks Highway was pretty amazing, the quintessential Alaskan image from pictures, movies etc. Vast stretches of forest, rugged mountains and huge rivers. Spectacular. One of my favourite days was the day we spent climbing over Broad Pass, a beautiful alpine area with meadows of various shades of green, dotted by the darker spruce trees and all bathed in an eerie mist.
