The ALCAN: A North American Safari
I really enjoy road trips, so when we moved from Virginia to Alaska, I got out some maps and made sure the Alaska-Canada Highway (ALCAN) was part of our route. We could have driven to Bellingham, Washington and taken the Alaska Marine Highway System ferries to Haines, but the ALCAN seemed like a fun adventure.
The wildlife viewing opportunities were amazing. We encountered bears, moose, caribou, sheep, and a herd of buffaloes. It's probably the closest one can come to a North American safari. The scenery wasn't too shabby either. Here are a few images; I hope to get back to photograph more.
