Denali Highway to the DJ

Here in Delta Junction, AK for a quick refuel and refresh before heading back out on the road towards the Yukon. Up next is the so called “Top of the World Highway”, though it isn’t much of a highway, nor is it truly at the top of the world. Step it up, naming committee. You’re on Big Ron’s shit list. Thought I would share a few photos from the Denali Highway, not to be confused with Denali Park. It was the original route into the park until the 70s, when the current park road was built. It is gravel and becomes a mess when wet.

After days of sun, our luck turned and we had 2 days of headwind and rain.

    As always; great pictures and blogging. Little worrisome to me that you don’t have a change of clothes, but then I am your aunt and not your Mom. Stay safe,
