LOL....it seems that we have those 2 seasons here too

The scenery is spectacular. What a wonderful state to explore.

That's something I would have loved to have done once.

Wow; driving 'the AlCan'; AWESOME view, Sallie♡♡♡ Amazed to read Alaska's two season of 'Winter and Road Construction'; also first time for me to see 'pilot car' :-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Wonderful, Sallie! I can only imagine the original years of paving the Alcan. Phew.

Grand views! I want to go to Alaska one day!

Al

Wow, that's a highway I'd love to drive end to end, with lots of time to explore. Spectacular!

Reader Wil

It must be a great moment to view all these majestic mountains. You have given us a wonderful sight of the scenery! Thank you so much.
Have a great week!
Wil, ABCW Team.

The views are always stunning-you must have thousands of photos!

What a drive that must have been. Fantastic photos Sallie. I hope I get to Alaska one day.

Eileen

Sounds like an awesome trip and a scenic road.. It is a trip hubby and I would love to do.. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

Wonderful! I'm very familiar with the Mile "o" post but have never been farther north on the highway than Ft. St. John. Some day I'd love to head to Alaska but not sure if it would be by road (I'm not a big fan of the mosquitos in the north) or by cruise ship. I'm sure scenery is very lovely.

During the war I was working in Edmonton (where I was born). During the construction of the Alaska Highway, and after, Edmonton liked to consider itself the 'gateway' to the Alaska Highway, although really it was Dawson Creek where it commenced. Charles had a nephew who drove a pilot car for many years on this Highway, and was full of tales....it is very beautiful country and so nice that you and your husband had the opportunity to see this northern part of the continent, Sallie,

Lady Fi

Must be one of the most scenic roads on earth! Just lovely.

Pat

You guys REALLY had a fantastic adventure! Not too many people can say they did the whole thing. Forwards, or backwards! Thanks for sharing it with us.
I thought the two seasons in Alaska were, Winter and insect.

vagabonde

Such great landscape! It must be so nice to have the freedom to stop on the way. Your pictures are outstanding.

Yogi

Driving the Alcan has been on my bucket list for some time. Great photos of the drive.

Rajesh

Beautiful and very scenic place.

Dianne

How wonderful that you made this trip. Truly stunning scenes.

Felicia

I would love to be able to drive this road. What a wonderful experience that must have been.

sylviakirk

These are awesome, Sallie!! Such an amazing and beautiful place! I'm so glad you got to see so much of it -- and take photos!! Thanks so much for sharing! Hope your week is off to a great start!

SandyCarlson

Thanks for sharing that bit of history! Amazing landscape.

Mick

Definitely "stupendous" scenery. We considered driving it in the early 70s but even then it was considered to be problematic! Now I wish we had gone!!

Penelope Puddlisms

Your photos do a good job of showing the vastness of the area … coming and going. A forward thinking decision made years ago has many sleeping more soundly knowing that this ginormous landmass is in North American hands.

'winter and road construction' - bless 'em!
