Coming Soon! Our Alaskan Road Trip Adventure!

We left the Dakota Ridge RV Park in Golden, CO for points north on the 8th of June, 2015…our objective was to travel to Alaska via the Alaska Highway, known originally as the Alcan Highway, which was constructed during WWII for the purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through Canada. This highway begins in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, continues through Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada and terminates at Delta Junction, Alaska. Our journey took us from Colorado through Wyoming, then to our embarkation point into Canada from Great Falls, Montana. From there we travelled to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, then on through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, finally arriving at Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. We also visited the Athabasca Glacier, one of the six toes of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada. Continuing on, we stopped at various points through British Columbia, finally arriving in Hyder, Alaska. Travelling through Haines Junction, a small village located in Yukon Territory, Canada at Kilometre 1,632 on the Alcan Highway, we finally arrived at Whitehorse, the capital of northwest Canada’s Yukon Territory. We continued on from Whitehorse to Tok, AK…the gateway from Canada into Alaska, exiting the Alcan at Delta Junction. From Tok we travelled to Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage, Seward, Whittier, and all points along the way. Having completed our tours in Alaska, we caught the Alaska Marine Highway ferry from Whittier, AK to Bellingham, Washington State, arriving on the 15th of August, 2015. From there we spent an additional five days travelling through La Grande, Oregon; Pocatello, Idaho; Rawlins, Wyoming; finally arriving home on the 13th of August, 2015. We were on the road for nine weeks, travelled over 6,586 miles by road and an additional 1,600 miles by ferry. We consumed over 574 gallons of fuel costing anywhere from $2.66/gal in Montana to $5.80/gal in Alberta, Canada.  We averaged 10.64 mpg overall towing an RV weighing in around 5,000 lbs, which doesn’t include the weight of the equipment and supplies loaded in the back of our Tahoe. We’ve posted several hours of video on YouTube, along with hundreds of photos combined into slideshows…also posted on YouTube. As we complete the website pertaining to this trip, we will update the content of our website with postings to these locations on the Directory page. More Images
