Images of the Alaska Highway

An Explorer's Guide to the Alaska Highway
The good old days in the Yukon. In about 1990, Ollie Worth (owner of Burwash Landing Lodge) had had enough of Kluane National Park being a no-road-access park, so climbed on a Cat and built a road up Halfbreed Creek. By the time Parks Canada found out about his project and put a stop to it, he had reached an impassable canyon anyway. I took my 1970 Blazer all the way up the road in August 1991.
