For the most part we opted to boon-dock in one of the many fantastic pullouts that lined the highway to Alaska. Our camping fee included access to the hot springs and we took full advantage with both an evening and morning soak in the soothing waters.

While at the park, it was berry season and the park was overrun with black bears. At dawn we saw a mother and her cub right outside the RV, and Abby and I spotted a moose on our early morning walk to the springs. We caught a glimpse of Athabasca Falls as we rounded a bend. There is a labyrinth of trails that flank the river on each side where you can peer over the lip of the box canyon and feel the pounding of the water reverberate in your chest.

One of the most striking differences between travel in the lower forty-eight and that in the great white north, is the complete lack of any obvious development other than the road of course. It is the most remote roadway we have ever experienced with endless miles of nothing but us, the road stretching off into the distance and a plethora of wildlife.

Along the way we spotted an abundance of wildlife, all of which were fascinating to watch, but presented a notable hazard while driving. From the wolf we noticed loping along the tree line to the bison that lined, and sometimes lounged in the road to the numerous caribou, moose, elk, stone sheep and bear crossings, we sometimes felt like we had inadvertently stepped into a high-stakes game of large mammal dodgeball.

As a safety precaution, we opted to forego driving at dawn and dusk in an effort to avoid a collision as we traveled through the more desolate areas of Canada. We spotted this big fella wading in a roadside lake near Jasper. Bison lined the road for hundreds of miles starting around Dawson Creek.

These beautiful and impressive creatures made for a sizable speed bump as they lounged in the road.

We thought it would be cool, but were shocked at the massive scale of this ever expanding sculpture.

Of course we had to leave our mark on the Sign Forest with a handmade Famagogo work of art. As we crossed the physical border into the Yukon, we noticed that quite suddenly we had also transitioned from summer into fall. The foliage changed from varying shades of green to vibrant hues of reds, oranges and yellows and crisp nighttime temperatures that suddenly yielded frost on our windshield.

The road conditions for the final mile push to the Alaskan border deteriorated to such an extent that we were forced to creep along at 45 MPH, doing our best to spot frost heaves in the road with enough warning to slow down enough to avoid seriously damaging Winnie the View.

After seven days and miles, we finally reached the US border. But the route is popular with smaller U. But under the current draft, fuel barges such as those that serve Alaska ports, would remain exempt. Alaska Public Media. A map of the Alaskan portion of the Inside Passage.
