Derek Meier sent us in this shot a liitle too late to get into our photo contest this summer. Here’s what Derek told us about his entry. (You can click on the photo to see it larger.)
The shot was taken on a trip to the Knik glacier in Alaska near Palmer last March. The rider is unknown. The toe of the glacier provides many interesting features to ride around, under, through, and to explore. It’s an easy 10 mile or so ride to the ice along the Knik river made easier by snow machine trails, wind buff, march snow, solid ice, strong legs, or any combination of the above. Although it was only around 15 degrees or so lunch was downright balmy sitting next to a giant reflective ice wall that provided great additional solar radiation. There is a ton more to explore around this spot.
Fat Foto Friday is a new weekly feature for us. We’d like to help kick off everyone’s fat-bike weekend(s)s with a little Friday afternoon foto-stoke thanks to the help of submissions from our readers.
