Anaktuvuk Pass Ranger Station
Departing from tiny town of Coldfoot, we took a half-day drive to the Brooks Range. The mountain range stretches from Canada to the western coast of Alaska. We passed over the highest point of any road in Alaska, zipping by the last spruce tree in the Boreal forest and entering a land of glacial-fed rivers and green and black mountain peaks. The Arctic Circle is sparsely populated by both man and beast, but is home to bears, moose, sheep, and hares, as well as tiny towns established during the gold rush. There is no cell service, no electricity, and nothing to obstruct the views of nature in its purest form. The highlight was the Anaktuvuk Pass, which gave the pipeline construction team hell with its sheer slopes, but has the most stunning views of the snow-capped mountains. #snow #extreme #alaska #globalgirltravels
