|On the road...
Since it was raining when I started - no pictures until I neared Denali. It was about a five hour drive from Fairbanks to Anchorage but since I started late I didn't quite make Anchorage before dark. Out of Fairbanks the road was high on a hill. Views off to each side went far. The left had a pine tree filled valley with a river at the base and a hill on the far side. To the right was a mix of low lands (marshy area) with grasses and a few trees. Most of the road was fresh asphalt which was nice. There was a set of miles of under construction surface of packed gravel. The Alaska railway was evident as it snaked along with the road (once the road came down from the top of the hill). Getting closer to Denali things became dry and the cameras came out.
Snow capped mountains in the distance became closer as I rolled on.
