Alaska Day Adventure

Alaska Day... it's our official state holiday that honors the formal transfer of the Territory of Alaska from Russia to the United States.  This event happened way back when on October 18, 1867.  Alaskans still celebrate it today - and for good reason. 

And what better way to celebrate this special holiday than by taking off on a sunset motorcycle ride through North Douglas and the Eaglecrest Ski Area?  Especially on a rare sunny evening when Juneau takes a break from her rainforest ways...

Second time on a motorcycle.  First time on a BMW.  German engineering is zee best.
