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!
