The Haul Road

Haul Road in Brooks Range



Hello, Alaska. So we've been here for a little over a week now and we've driven north to south. Four hundred plus miles up the Dalton Highway, also known as the Haul Road, past the Arctic Circle, through the unearthly, spectacular Brooks Range, and to the Arctic Ocean. Decked out with extra gas tanks and two spare tires, we took the infamous Dalton Highway on and achieved our goal. After adjusting to endless daylight, we seem to be missing it already.

Now, over 800 miles south of the Arctic, we're on the Kenai Peninsula, searching for silver salmon. Fly fishing. Check. Delicious arctic grayling. Check. Salmon and Alaska Range, here we come.

    1. It has been more beautiful than we could have imagined, more delicious, with all the fresh blueberries and fish, and more wild than we have ever dreamed!

    1. No checkmarks. Just traveling to a few key locations in Alaska then setting on whichever dirt road we please. Suggestions are welcome!
