Dots and Dashes

Approaching the Franklin Bluffs

I spent a good portion of this past summer exploring Alaska by motorcycle, one of the best parts was heading north to Deadhorse on the haulroad, also known as the Dalton Hwy. It’s a 450 mile ride north on gravel and ends at the Arctic Ocean, daylight for 24 hours a day and a cold wind blowing in off the ocean. You know you’re getting close when the Franklin Bluffs appear on the horizon in what is otherwise flat rolling tundra. An amazing expanse of remote wilderness as far as the you can see, just open tundra…hope this captures some of it.
