Trip to Alaska

While posting here on best way to see Alaska a friend sent me an idea.

You can take the ferry through the inside passage to Valdez making stops along the way. If you get a round trip ticket I believe you can get off at each stop.

The AlCan is paved the entire distance, just remember summer time is roadwork time. There are really only two seasons up here, Winter and Construction Get yourself a copy of the Milepost and go for it.

The prettiest trip is probably the Western route through Burns and Dease Lake, as it winds through the coastal mountains.

You can join the Ironbutt crowd!

Thanks for that bit of info. I believe I'll choose the construction season instead of the winter.
Thanks again.

Just make sure you have enough gas to make it to the next station - which may be a tank and a bit away depending on when you travel. Agree with the post above about getting the milepost.
