Rachel Carson Trail Challenge

June 24, 2006 Leave a comment

The Rachel Carson Trail is a 34-mile hiking trail near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every year on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice (to provide the longest possible daylight), the Rachel CarsonTrail Challenge is held, where participants hike (or attempt to hike) the entire trail in one day.

This was my first time participating in this event. It took me about 15 hours to hike the entire trail; I finished, but not before the “official” cut-off time.

I took a long walk on the outskirts of suburban Anchorage to see some sights and do some shopping, and had a close encounter with a moose along the way.

Dog Sled Tour

March 10, 2004 Leave a comment

Claire and I drove from Anchorage, up the Alaskan Highway past Wasilla to the Big Susitna Bed and Breakfast, which also runs a dog sled touring operation. Taking a mushing tour was something that I had always wanted to do, and it was a blast; everything that I had expected and more.
