Here’s another photo from my drive from Fairbanks, Alaska to Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.
This is a photo from the drive I once took from Fairbanks, Alaska all the way up to Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.
I forgot all about this, but at some point I posted large photos of my 2007 drive from Fairbanks, Alaska to Prudhoe Bay. As you can see in those photos, it’s dirt roads all the way.
494 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska. No services for 240 miles. 30 degree temps, fog, and very little visibility. That was a long, cold day in July. (August, actually.) Somehow I drove all the way from Deadhorse (Prudhoe Bay) to Talkeetna, about 770 miles.

The Arctic Caribou Inn, aka, the “Hilton” of Deadhorse (Prudhoe Bay), Alaska. I drove up there once upon a time in early August, 2007.
Back in the day I drove up to Fairbanks, Alaska, and then from there I drove up to Prudhoe Bay, which is as far north as you can drive in Alaska. I put some gas cans on the car because I didn’t know if there were really going to be any gas stations on the 494 mile drive, but a little “town” of Coldfoot had a couple of gas pumps.
