2007 Alaska Road Trip

Home Fine Art Photography Travel Journals Articles Contact

One of the road trips that I have always wanted to do is to drive to Alaska. The minimum comfortable length of time to make this trip is about four weeks, so this year during my leave of absence from work is the best time for me to do it. Tony was interested and decided to go with me as well.

In order to not worry about making lodging reservations all along the way and being stuck to a predefined schedule, we are towing a small hard sided popup trailer from Chalet RV (, specifically the Arrowhead model, and we will be camping most of the time.
