Nenana and the Alaskan North Pole

After the unforgettable Denali experience, we drive from Healy to Nenana, enroute to North Pole, via the George Parks Highway. A stop in Nenana to spot the legendary Alaska Railroad train fails, but the log cabin and Santa Claus House in North Pole delight us! (September 2015)

Visiting Denali but the ‘Tall One’ Hides

We are at Denali village, the gateway to the world famous Denali National Park, an American icon. The morning starts with less-than-stellar weather as we make our way to the township at the entrance to this great national park. We are heading deep into the park, and snow is forecast. This should be fun. (September 2015)

Leaving Anchorage and into the Alaskan Wilderness

Autumn of 2015, and we embark on another epic journey — a self-drive tour of Alaska, doing the Anchorage-Denali-Fairbanks-Glenallen-Seward-Anchorage loop, via Routes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 9 (not necessarily in that order) for a total distance of 1700km. This story is the first part of the journey — the very scenic 400km leg from Anchorage to Denali National Park. (September 2015)
