Al-Can Highway

We’re actually crossing the border at Alberta but all of the Alberta “Welcome” sign images turned out blurry. So, we’ll go with BC.

Followed by a day and a half of “…not a helluva lot.”

Finally getting somewhere worth getting to.

The Alaska pipeline.

Overlooking Fairbanks from the college. Fairbanks was a very spread out city, very forested, with a well laid out highway system around the perimeter.

How’d you like to tackle this 20ft tall SOB with nothing more than a pointy stick and some rocks?

I don’t like taking pictures of pictures, but I thought this was neat. Below is the terminus of the pipeline at Valdez.

Flying from Seatac to Portland: Rainier is above; Saint Helens is below.
