Dalton Highway


08062406.JPG

Our journey south started on the Arctic Ocean in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The first 500 miles to Fairbanks passed through some of the most remote territory on earth. We carried all our food for this 16 days as we wouldn't find a single grocery store and only three restaurants!

Our second major hurdle was to conquer all 1422 miles of the Alaska Highway. We were blessed with incredible views of the Alaska Range, which we all goggled over!

Break Time799 viewsThe mosquitoes weren't out yet because it was a bit too cold (notice all the clothes we're wearing) so the breaks were relaxing. The only drawback is that we had to ration all the food because of our limited supplies.

Candlestick Ice700 viewsRiver ice formed elaborate, intricate crystals called Candlestick ice. I took months to form but only minutes for the boys to destroy it. It would have been gone in a week or so as it was already starting to melt.
