Alaska - Dalton Highway

Dalton HighwayThis is the trip! The Dalton Highway. The pipeline dirt road, 500 miles. Only the true die hards drive this road. We rented a SUV from a special outdoor sports company, with extra insurance. Not one flat tire or cracked windshield. ! Rule of the road is to yield to the truckers and they will not spray you with stones or shove you off the road. It's their road. A lady we met in Fairbanks told us of the rules of the road and she called her husband to let him know we were on the road. She said he was out there and if we had trouble he would stop. We didn't have trouble, but we also pulled over everytime a truck was coming and waited and it paid off. Travel along from start to finish with the gallery below. A true adventure!
