Due to new search engine rules, ExploreNorth is currently being completely rebuilt to remove most links to other Web sites. What will remain from our 20,000-page peak will be the thousands of original articles and photos that we have posted pertaining to Alaska, the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and northern British Columbia. During the rebuild, you can still access them with our site search engine.
The focus of ExploreNorth is now a bit tighter than it had gotten to be, with travel information and history being paramount. Photography, both historic and current, will continue to be an important aspect of our interpretation of both of those subjects.
A major part of this rebuild is the re-writing of the community and highway guides that are an important part of the site for many of our readers. The new guides will give more information and will only have links to major information sites about a specific community or highway.
