"A typical weekend in Anchorage is the dream of a lifetime anywhere else," says the Big Wild Life ad. Unfortunately, my day off this week was Wednesday, July 23rd. We had scheduled a ride, and even though it was pouring rain, ride we did, about 25 miles out towards Eagle River and back. Cold, wet, colder, wetter, painfully cold, scalding hot shower,and then later in the day looking up and seeing fresh snow on the mountains.
I'm still kind of waiting for the rosy retrospection to set in.
