Ski Train

Curry, Alaska. Railroad through nowhere.

A sunny and breezy tour and a fun trip on the train. Curry has nice touring terraine. We arrived a few days after the wind and found variable snow conditions, from a few inches of fluff, to boiler plate, to semi-supportable crust.
The Ski Train is a great event organized by the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage. About 800 people make the trip. Highly recommended.

As the train passed through the model community of Alaska, Wasilla, we looked for Russia and almost could see her.
