More Alaska

Leaving Denali was hard, but I was way late as I was supposed to be in North Pole, AK (yes, really...) for a bonfire. Still, how can you not stop to take pictures of scenery like this?
Or things like this? A Huey delivering a small bulldozer to a highway construction site. Only in Alaska...
Here's the Alaskan Pipeline as it passes through Fairbanks.
This thing runs eight hundred miles, from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez. Hippies and greenies hate it, but all of America relies on it.
So now I'm getting set to go play Alaska State Trooper. Nice car, huh? Here we are, pulling out of Tom's garage and getting ready to go fight crime.
And here we are, going to resolve yet another domestic resulting from the usual source, even in Alaska: Baby Mama Drama.
The voice you hear in the background is Super Trooper Tom.

Oh--and here's that big golf ball that was guarded by the two security goons "construction workers" in a pick up truck. Really blends with the surroundings, doesn't it? Masters of camouflage, those Alaskans.


  1. Well they could at least put a driving range or 3 par course behind it! Sheesh!

  2. Ah, the sweet sound of a run. I do miss it from time to time.

  3. Great pics and enjoyed the video! :)
