This was the temperature Sunday morning about 7:30 am. I decided to go for a ride anyway. I made me a good breakfast first. It's still dark this time of day so, breakfast is by oil lamp.
About 11:30 am, I left to ride up to Willow Creek, one of my favorite places to go. This is what it looked like when I left.
Took this picture on the way
Got up to my favorite spot
This is a cabin across the creek, no road to it.
How is it accessed, you ask? By handrail, this is how they cross and bring their supplies across.
Pretty neat, eh?
On the way back, I stopped at a parking area where people park their vehicles and off load their snowmachines to hit the trails.
Even when you drive way out on dirt roads and hardly see anyone, it's hard to get away from modernization.
It was still early so, I decided to take a ride to Deshka Landing in Willow. This is a place where people go to launch their snowmachines in the Winter and boats in the Summer. Here is where it all happens. People also use it as a staging area for supplies they are taking out to their remote cabins. You pay by the day or by the season.
The road to Deshka
These 55 gallon containers are used to transport gas out to remote cabins
On the way back to the cabin, I stopped at Kashwitna Lake to photograph Denali.
By the time I got back, It was still pretty cold so, this called for something to take the chill off. This is a good soup.
I sauteed 1/2 lb. ground breakfast sausage, 2 handfuls of sliced mushrooms, 2 cups chopped onions, 2 cups chopped sweet peppers, parsley, couple cloves minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Add all these ingredients and 28 oz. of canned diced tomatoes to the macaroni and the water used to cook the macaroni, stir and enjoy.
Well, that pretty much how my Sunday went. Even as cold as it was, it was good to get out and enjoy myself. take care.
