The Start of the Alaska Highway – Edmonton, AB to Liard Hot Springs, BC

Driving northwest from Edmonton it is a little strange to see signs for Alaska.  Technically Edmonton is the last major city that you come across when driving to Alaska however the Alaska border is still over 1500 miles away.  The city of Anchorage is about 400 miles past that.  To put that in perspective, 1900...

Canada’s Cowboy Capital – Calgary, Alberta

Crossing the Border Crossing the border at anytime is a bit nerve wracking.  The normal questions are “Where are you going, How long will you be in Canada and What do you do for a living?”.  When the answer to “What do you do for a living?” is technically unemployed and traveling the customs agent...

Helena, MT and Glacier National Park

Driving west from Bozeman Julie and I traveled further west in Montana than we had ever been before.  The mountains got bigger and the people, fewer.  Soon enough we pulled into Helena, the capitol of Montana.  As we love to do when in capitol cities our first stop was the capital building itself.  So far...

Big Sky Country – Billings & Bozeman, Montana

Traveling north from Wyoming to Montana was one of our checkpoints on this trip.  This would be the last state that we would stop in before crossing the border into Canada, one step closer to getting to Alaska.  This was also a new state for us in a way.  In talking with a few people,...

The Soul of the Southwest – Taos, NM

Leaving Santa Fe we were on our way to our last stop in New Mexico in the town of Taos.  As before when we drove around Santa Fe, the drive to Taos was awesome.  People generally don’t think of New Mexico being in the Rocky Mountains but it is.  Taos itself sits at almost 7000...
