The colors are starting to change here in Anchorage and the birch trees are getting fairly yellow. When I ride up Hiland road in Eagle River and hit 700ft of elevation the colors become full blown and beautiful.
Keep climbing. See the ridge to the right? I'll be pedaling up and up that sucker.
And 50 minutes later I'll be at the ~2000ft. top. 15 minutes and 45mph later I'll be back at the bottom.
There will be snow up here within a few weeks for sure. Time to get in as many climbs as possible.
