ADVENTURE BY BIKE®

Image Inspiration: Evening Settles On The Kenai

This image was taken on the Kenai Peninsula as I worked my way along the beach from Homer to Kenai and points beyond. The day's ride had been a perfect blend of blue skies, no wind and stunning views of the volcanic peaks that dotted the western horizon forming the Aleutian range and the Chigmit mountains. Shortly after finding a way to cross the frozen Cohoe River, I made camp high above the tide line amongst the frozen chunks of ice that littered the shoreline. These same chunks of ice that were so beautiful on this cool day would become the source of muck and mush as the warming Alaskan temperatures caused each mini iceberg to begin the annual springtime melt.

Awesome. It’s nice to see the bike used as a means to explore rather than a tool to race.

Great photo.

GC,

you should have stopped by our house here on the beach in Homer, but I hope you had/are having a great trip. Post more pics!

Did the tide reach your camp in this photo? It looks to me like you didn’t quite get above high tide line. Please let us know…

Any hope it’s a great trip!

Pat
