A First Time Experience of Seward Highway
The seward highway is one of the most scenic roads I've ever driven, and there in lies it's danger. It winds along the Turnagain Arm and is full of people succumbing to the tempation to gaze off.

The Dinotors in Winter
These Granite Tors look way closer than they are...the landscape near Fairbanks is not soaring mountains but waves and waves of slow mellow hills and alpine trees...the distance will sneak up on you...before you know it darkness will fall and you will be wandering around the hardly distinguishable domes of the tundra...the tors give just enough character to help you get your bearings
The Little Susitna Almost Frozen
