Catching up

Life has been busy, so here I am playing catch up again. The early July trip to Alaska was short, but great. I ran in the annual Mount Marathon race on the 4th. This was year 7 racing in the Adult division, year 9 overall (counting junior races).

Mamie came up to Alaska with me so we tried to keep busy. We went rafting on the Talkeetna River, went on a wildlife tour out of Seward, took a quick trip up to Hatcher Pass, and did some exploring around Anchorage and the Valley. The trip was short, but packed full.

I had pre-ordered the iPhone4 and picked that up while I was home. The camera is better than the camera on my little point and shoot, so I should be able to upload some pretty awesome photos remotely.

I've been getting out to ride my bike a lot lately and helped during a dig day on Teton Pass last weekend. The new trail has a lot of work to be done, but looks like it is going to be insane. Very well planned out and built. I'm excited for it to be officially open.

I tried out the GPS app on my phone 'Trails'. I mapped out the Jimmy's to Parallel section in the pass and imported it into Google Maps. Pretty awesome. I've attached an image of the trail.

I'll try to upload a bunch of Alaska/Summer in Jackson photos this week.
