It was a long, wet, cold, drive down the Alaska Highway. Not one clear day the entire length. We felt a sense of accomplishment when we got to Dawson Creek at the end. I am elated that we had the opportunity to drive this road. It has been an adventure – but once is enough. I have too many memories of health problems, camper problems, car problems, and weather problems – not to mention the huge amount of time and money it took. That is all part of the adventure of The Alaska Highway. If you ever get a chance – DO IT!
The Northern Rockies
The only place on the entire road that I would like to revisit is the stretch through the Northern Rockies in British Columbia. That was my favorite spot – but it was all obscured by thick overcast and constant rain while we were there. I also liked the stretch near Haines Junction, around Kluane Lake, and along the Alaska Range.
After Dawson Creek and The Great Alaska Highway, we went through the Canadian Rockies and on to Montana. That will be the next and last post of The Great Alaska Adventure Road Trip of 2016!
