Landscape & scenery photos from Dalton Highway
This is one of my favorite pictures -- I think it really captures the character of the place. This is the view from the south of Sukakpak Mountain, a prominent landmark on the south side of the Brooks Range. The Dalton Highway winds in an arc around Sukapak, providing very different views from different angles.
Snowden Mountain in the Brooks Range, viewed here from the north, is one of the most impressive peaks along the Dalton Highway. It's coloration is striking in the evening light out of the west.
This is one of the first creeks crossed on the Dalton Highway itself, but I can't remember its name.

This is a huge panorama from spectacular Finger Mountain, shot by spinning my telephoto zoom lens around almost 360 degrees on a tripod and stitching together around 20 exposures. I hope this is about as close as you'll come on a computer to standing on a mountaintop in Alaska taking in the view.
