Alaskas Dalton Highway


Don't even think about towing anything up the Dalton. It is a real nasty road right now although the country it run through is beautiful. We day tripped it with my truck up to past the Arctic Circle to a place called Gobblers Knob. They are working on the road but even that will take all summer to patch up the worst spots. But with all that said it is quite a trip rough as it was.
That's me and Bandit on the l right.

I'm really jealous right now.

I'm hoping that the wife and I can take a picture in that exact spot in a few years.

If we have time I plan to just take the truck and ride the Dalton, wouldn't it be great to go back and ride the Dalton in winter when the road is frozen

We made the Dalton Highway trip all the way to Dead Horse 5 years ago. I mentioned in my blog that the first 20 miles are the absolute worst. I wonder if they do that to keep tourists off the road.

What is with the coats & long pants, it is summer there.

We had problems sleeping in June. The lights never go off. Even at 11PM it was like 4PM at home.

I have pics of myself standing in the same spot! It was back in the latter part of the 90's. I was stationed in Fairbanks. My father in law came up to do a caribou hunt. It was quite the adventure. I brought 2 spares with me. We ended up having 3 flats! I had decent tires too! A couple hundred miles of rough gravel road can tear the crap out of anything.

Absolutely a highlight in my life though. Priceless memories!!
