For me 2012 was a significant year. I did what I had been dreaming for a long time, a 12,901 mile trip to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska with my new Yamaha Super Tenere. I met wonderful people along the way, saw amazing scenery, reached the top of the Alaska Oil Pipeline in Prudhoe Bay, aka Deadhorse, and then rode south to Valdez to the end of the pipeline. Rode through various National Parks in Canada and the USA, saw a few glaciers and countless wildlife.
2012 also brought a major change in my life, after countless years in the IT field I started a photography company, ran it for almost a year and then started an IT job again, so now I have two jobs and a lot less time to ride.
I have been slow blogging my trip to Alaska but I plan on completing the remaining days much faster in the new year. Completing the blog of my trip is one of my resolutions for 2013.
I will end the year with some of the best pictures from the Alaska trip.
On Top of the world on the Dalton Highway
One of the "Welcome to Alaska" signs, this one is on "Top of the World Highway"
Coming back to the Yukon from Skagway, Alaska
"Top of the World Highway"
More of "Top of the World Highway", endless curves riding the top of the mountains
276km (172 miles) riding on "Top of the World Highway"
This day was one of the best riding days of my trip, "Top of the World Highway"
A little peace and quietness
Proceeding at my own risk in the Yukon
Leaving Dawson City, what a wonderful time I had there
All alone, spending time contemplating life on the way to Skagway, Alaska
What next? What will the future bring?
