Alaska Highway/Liard Hot Springs – Winter 2012

The Alaska Highway is arguably the most interesting built piece of the Northern Rockies.  I’ve had the opportunity to make a few runs as far as Liard Hot Springs (about 250km north of Fort Nelson) but didn’t have the time (or rationale) to run up to the Yukon border, which would involve another 250km.  Similar […]
