On the Highway to Alaska from the Yukon, photo by John Ecker | pantheon photography

ON THE HIGHWAY TO ALASKA FROM THE YUKON:  It is a beautiful drive from Carcross, Yukon to Skagway, Alaska. Originally, the route was called the Carcross Road and then became part of the Alaska Highway during the Second World War.  That highway was developed at a frantic pace in wartime.   It has also served the mining industry well, but today is largely used for tourist traffic during the busy summer months.  Stop anywhere along the road and you are sure to take in a breathtaking vista.
