While we get our next series of posts ready, I though I’d share with you this playlist featuring videos of our 2010 Alaska adventure. We enjoyed the Midnight Sun Festival in Fairbanks, which celebrated the summer solstice. We also explored a little bit of Denali National Park, including a rare sighting of Mount McKinley, North America’s highest peak. Finally we drive on the world’s northernmost highway, the Dalton. After dipping our toes in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean, we return to Fairbanks to spend some quality time with relatives. Enjoy.
What goes up must usually go down. In our case, what goes north must go south. In this episode of my former podcast Traveling Robert, we return from the Arctic back to Fairbanks, in central Alaska, a 500 mile trip. On the first leg we drive through the tundra, and then cross the Brookes mountain range to spend the “night” in the arctic village of Wiseman. Well, it never gets dark this time of the year so the term night doesn’t really apply. On the second leg we go through the boreal forest and across the mighty Yukon river, all this on America’s most isolated road, the mostly unpaved James Dalton Highway. Filmed in late June 2010. Enjoy!
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.
