I jumped for joy almost right out of my car when the gravel disappeared and a paved hiway came into view.  I thought, whew I can really make good time now but oh how wrong I was!  With the extreme temperatures that fluctuate from season to season in Alaska, the road has these waves of pavement that send a car right out of control. So there I am back driving about 50 mph again.

I did not finish the Alcan hiway until I drove to Fairbanks for the first time.  Unbeknowst to me, it ends in Fairbanks and not in Anchorage.

Taken in Fairbanks, Alaska

That is Butch a friend of mine that I met at Chilkoot Charles in Anchorage – another story.
