A few years ago I had the opportunity to travel the Dalton Highway (AKA The Haul Road). While I’ve been getting ready to instruct a two hour workshop on keeping travel journals (Nov. 14, 2013) I ran across these images of that trip. 400 plus miles from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay (one way) with three gas stations — Yukon Crossing, Cold Foot and Prudoe Bay. A fantastic trip where we saw several Musk Ox and a large part of the Northern Caribou herd.
