274 miles - 9 hours

Stopped in Tok for coffee and ended up having a salad bar with it!! We stop in the visitor center in Tok to get an opinion on the northern versus southern route to the Denali Highway - north wins. Heading south from Delta Junction brings wind which has you holding onto the handlebars for dear life. Riding in second position is nice as you can see the leader get rocked by gusts and prepare for it. We round a corner to the best mountain scenery of the trip - jagged, snow covered peaks which rise right out of the river bed. We make our first crossing of the pipeline and stop for pics - it's quite an engineering marvel. After a quick fuel stop we begin the Denali althought the first 22 miles are pave to the campground. The fun begins in the morning.
