In this installment of my former podcast “Traveling Robert” we reach the northernmost point of our Alaska road trip. Above latitude 70 degrees north, we must take a guided tour into the Prudhoe Bay oil fields so we can deep our toes in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean. Enjoy.
In this episode of my former podcast we finally reach the town of Deadhorse, Alaska, completing the 414 miles of the James Dalton Highway. We cross the Brooke’s mountain range at the dangerous Atigun Pass, and cross the North Slope and the desolate Coastal Plains.
We continue our trip up Americas most isolated road, The James Dalton Highway. It is also called the Haul Road, because its original purpose was to support the construction of the Alaska Pipeline. In this episode we drive north of the Arctic Circle stopping by the arctic village of Wiseman.
In this episode we embark in the road trip of a lifetime. We are going to do America’s northernmost and most isolated road: The Dalton Highway. In this first installment we travel from Fairbanks, Alaska to the Arctic Circle.
