This stretch of Alaska Highway, a AAA designated “Scenic Highway”, really deserves its designation. Passing through the Northern Rockies, across three river drainage areas, and mountain passes with limited traffic is a great experience.
One key is to travel it in early morning. Only two vehicles passed me the first hour. When I arrived at Muncho Lake (30 miles after departing) the lake was still—completely calm. (See today’s photo.) The couple with family that took a photo of me by float planes arrived the previous afternoon and could not believe the difference.
Now you know one of several reasons it ride early morning, no wind; 2. No traffic; 3. More wildlife; 4. Arrive early; and 5. Making a much more pleasurable ride.
Why ride if you do not enjoy it?
