My campsite was about 40 yards off of the Nabesna Road.  It was the most remote spot I had ever camped!

A bit of ice on the road.

The story of Noyes Mountain.

This is Noyes Mountain, described in the previous picture.

I saw this utility pole south of Tok.  Notice it is missing the bottom portion!

Another view of the pole.

In Tok, I am back on the Alaska Highway!

Pretty views of the Alaskan landscape.

I stopped by the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, unfortunately closed for the season.

My return to Canada, and the Yukon Territory.  Back into the Pacific Time Zone, this is my fifteenth time zone crossing!

This plaque was at the border.

This panel, also at the border, describes what can happen to roads built on permafrost.

Another look at the border marker, as well as other items on the Alaska side.

One final indication that I am in Canada.

The winding Alaska Highway.

This panel describes the Icefield Ranges, the youngest mountain range in Canada.
