The trip is done March 2016.
On our way to Seward
Alaskan Halibut chunks for lunch
Bay view @ Seward
.. and they take care of baby otter as well!
An octopus made of clean-ups from the sea to remind us of protecting ocean environment.
stung by one of these
Group picture on our way back
Anchorage from our hotel window. The whole city is a major transfer hub of all the traffic along Alaska oil pipeline.
Spectacular view (one of the greatest road trip route that I’ve been). And it was not that cold.
Dog sledding (you are basically just sitting on the ground and it was really bumpy) —
Drinking at an ice bar. No pictures for enjoying a night swim in the hot spring near by.
University of Alaska and there is a small museum inside
Heading to Dalton Highway the next day
Dalton highway is one of the most dangerous highways of all, with extreme weather almost all year round and minimum services. Trucks dominates this road. Can’t imagine what would happen if the a car breaks down along this road.
Mighty Yukon river.
We made a tiny snowman.
Looks like the snow is about to melt (look how close we can get to the ice surface of the river!)
Arctic tundra, we are close to the arctic circle. All trees become tiny version of themselves. It was said that all plants can only grow up to 3 times of the thickness of the soil underneath.
Arrived arctic circle
The grand pipeline (it grows and shrinks with temperature!).
Stopped along the way for Borealis but with no luck. We saw faded green light the other day but didn’t take any pictures. Maybe it’ll be a perfect reason to come back to Alaska.
