adventures and madness

Alaska

I’ve just returned (with my son) from a (likely) once in a lifetime road trip to Alaska (from the SF Bay Area). Over 19 days, I drove 8411 miles, and saw tons of stuff from Seward in the south all the way up to Deadhorse on the Arctic Ocean in the north. Thankfully, I had no car problems (not even a flat tire or damaged windshield).
Here are the photo highlights of the trip.
