My first night I pulled off the road and found a place to sleep in the back of the car. I didn't sleep much though, for fear of death by rural inbred Canadians, or because I just felt like driving.
I drove the whole next day and entered back into the United States (in Alaska) around 8:30pm. It was bitterly cold in the far north, well below zero with strong winds. I decided it was best not to meander too long that night so I only slept for about an hour, drove for awhile, slept another two hours, and then continued driving and welcomed the morning sun. I arrived in Girdwood, Alaska at 11am in great spirits on a gorgeous day. I am, however, still recovering from lack of sleep.
Overall, my trip was spectacular. In my mind it is a continual blur of massive beauty throughout. It is wonderful to think that there still are places one could die in the harsh elements of Mother Nature. I hope it stays this way for many generations to come. In the end, I feel every person should experience the drive through Canada to Alaska at least once in their lives. The adventure and wondrous beauty is absolutely breathtaking.
