On the Road in Alaska

When we were in Alaska last month, we did lots of driving.  It was lots of fun to cover as much ground as we did (about 2000 miles in 6 days).  Alaska is a big place, and there is so much to see when you drive there.

Some of our favorite spots on the road were these:

Fairbanks to Delta Junction  — beautiful mountain scenery there

Glenallen to Palmer — mountains, glaciers, and usually lots of wildlife (though we had a quiet day in that department)

Anchorage to Seward — glaciers, mountain, and sea... one of the most beautiful stretches of road I have ever seen (both directions)

Seward to Howard — forest and wildlife (saw lots of moose here); on the Homer side of the Peninsula, lots of coastal views

Wasilla to Fairbanks — Denali National Park

Fairbanks north on HWY 11 — we made it to the Arctic Circle and saw the Northern Lights... fantastic!  (Though the road is mostly frequented by big trucks at work on the Pipeline, so it's a little rugged)
