The Alaskan Highway

The Alskan Highway is a popular route itself. There really isn't anyway to give conventional directions, therefore I will just provide some specifics.

I acquired this information for the "Out West Newspaper". Hopefully, some of this info can help in the planning of an Alaskan Highway trip sometime in the future.
