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.
Here’s a nice little story about the Permafrost Tunnel in Fairbanks, Alaska (and global warming, and a house sinking).
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.
As one last photo of Alaska (for the time being), here’s the Arctic Circle sign that you’ll find on the Dalton Highway north of Fairbanks, on the way up north to places like Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.
I don’t look at website stats very often, but with a little free time tonight I was just curious how many people in Alaska visit this website. I was glad to see people have visited it from Utqiagvik, Kotzebue, Nome, Fairbanks, North Pole, Unalaska, Bethel, Kodiak Island, Ketchikan, and many other locations. Alaska holds a special place in my heart, and I hope the pages on this site have been useful to the people there.
A favorite sign in Alaska. Anchorage to the right, Fairbanks to the left. Keep it simple.
Meanwhile, in Fairbanks, Alaska ... the ArcticCam shows snow on the roads. Temps are 24/30, freezing rain is likely.
