    Sheesh, finally I have finished commenting on my not-so-recent backpacking trip to hike the Chilkoot Trail in Skagway and also another trip (2nd Annual) to Denali National Park.

    I did the trip with a friend I met when going to Alaska in 2001 to do some riding for charity.
    Next year's trips:
    Hopefully go see the Tour de France
    Do some more bike touring, like riding my bike from NYC to Bar Harbor, ME and go back to visit Acadia Nat. Park again.
    Hope you like them..

    Very nice pictures.

    Two questions:
    How bad were the bugs in August?
    What camera are you using?

    The bugs this time wasn't bad. Last year, when I rode my bike from Fairbanks to Anchorage, the bugs were worse. But then Denali was colder this year so the bugs weren't bad at all. The mosquitos were bad in Skagway on the Chilkoot Trail, but I had bug spray and was prepared.
    The camera is an old Kodak DC280, 2.1MP camera..
