Day 8

Today I started to ride the very road that this trip was planned on, the James W. Dalton Highway, usually referred to as the Dalton Highway, or as locals call it, the Haul Road.
It begins at the Elliot Highway, north of Fairbanks, (Alaska) and ends at Deadhorse near the Arctic Ocean and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields.

I started riding from Leo's house in Fairbanks to Coldfoot where I stayed at the outrageously priced Coldfoot Camp.
The road was part paved and part gravel which made it an interesting ride with terrific scenery, although it was easier than I expected.

On the way to Coldfoot I also crossed the Arctic Circle.
