當初想一探遠在天邊的阿拉斯加

就是它遠在天邊

對怕熱的我

涼冷的氣候是不可抗拒的吸引力

此外

能近距離接觸棕熊看其生態

Katmai NP

以及在冰河上健行

Go Glacier Hiking

還有可摸到北極海

進入管制區北極油田

這一切的"不平凡"

驅動了往北國發展 

 

要往北極圈

勢必行經惡名昭彰的Dalton Highway

Dalton Highway

Dalton Highway

有一些部落客是自駕前往

但在阿拉斯加租車

這一段是不給予保險

往來北極海的大型油罐車與物資車24小時不停歇

夏日泥濘

on the way to Yukon River

不時的陡坡

on the way to Yukon River

冬季裡除了要注意路上結冰打滑

更要注意突如其來的暴風雪狂風

on the way to the Arctic Circle

on the way to the Arctic Circle

Dalton Highway

當地人車上都備有專業的通訊器材

帶我們到北極海的 local guide - Joseph

Joseph

我們一般轎車一來輪胎不夠厚實

二來車上沒無線電通訊器材

沒事是幸運

我們還是請專業的當地 local guides

玩得安全安心

否則就不叫"玩"

而是"完了!"
