12-07-20 Friday 150 days 34 km 26 miles Thanks again to the Richie Family – Off to our first fish fry of Northern Pike
Heading out of Hains Junction – I left early since I am the slowest and there is a long up hill. Joe and Emma are riding and Michael is getting a ride in the pickup truck to the top of the hill – He deserves it.
This is the story of the little Catholic church here in Hains Junction – similare to Beaver Creek .
Neat little chapelNeat little chapel
Time for some quite and reflection
The flowers along the road side are stupendous
That looks like the up hill ahead – A good tale wind picked up just like Marc said it would
Just lots of breathtaking scenes to sooth and occupy the mind
a long way off it is cold
Zooming closer is a great view
Rolling along the road
it is a great tail wind blowing me up the grade it is a great tail wind blowing me up the grade
up close the vegitation is a little sparse Probably because 175 yrs ago this was at the bottom of a huge lake until the Glacier started to melt from indian camp fire(I bet) and the lake drained out in one day
Joe and Emma passed me on the way to the top as did Marty with Michael in the Pickup – Glad they were waiting for me to get there.
and Milkshakes from Marty were had by all – what a great deal
Off on the down hill side
The mountains off in distance yield some great rugged close up pictures
I caught up to Emma on the down hill – it is low profile and much more mass on bike
meet another Bicyclist heading south – his wife hitch hikeed to Hains Junction with a little stomach ailement. Hope she is better
i These young ladies are with the fellow up ahead – One from Portland, Oregon and the other from Australia

Michael with his first Northern Pike he caught, He went fishing with his new friend anc caught one – the first on the poles we have carried for 1000+ miles.
