End of the Road ... Sort of

We made it to Delta Junction, Alaska, which is officially the end of the Alaska Highway. I've gone 5,215 miles since I pulled out of my driveway in Shreveport a week and a half ago. We got in about 9:30 at night, set up camp, and then began to explore the tiny town. We took photos in front of the historic milepost marking the end of the highway, and then went to a local bar called Buffalo Lodge and played some pool. By the time we headed out of there and got back to camp after midnight, it was still light out and showing no signs of letting up. I went to bed at 1:30am ... still pretty bright. It really messes with your body's time clock, but it is amazing nonetheless. Now that we've finished the main objective of our trip, it is on to Fairbanks, the Arctic Circle and Denali National Park, among other Alaska locations.
