~~ Denali Highway ~~


Denali Highway is a 135-mile mostly-gravel highway that stretches between Paxson to the east and
Cantwell to the west. It parallels the spine of the Alaskan Range and offers a drive so spectacular that
the travelers forget the rough driving. Imagine a place where you are the only human being present for
miles. Imagine a place where you may pull over and camp for as little or as long as you wish, with only
mountains, stars, and wildlife for companions.
