World Travel, Marc and Peggy Faucher


Alaska and Northwest Canada, 2015

Here is a collection of photos taken in Alaska, Yukon Territories, British Columbia and Alberta during June and July of 2015. We explored many of the remote highways of the region, floated down the Kongukut River in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, visited Denali National Park and made our way east to Whitehorse, Jasper, Lake Louise and Calgary. Look for more details on our blog at "Along the Boreal Byway", "Paddling Kongakut to Arctic Ocean", "Dallying along the Dalton Highway", "The Great One", "Six-Bear Day", "Clunking Down the Cassier" and "Glaciers Galore!".
