Driving through the Ice Field Highway. This day fought me for picture taking. Messed with White Balance a bit and some other setting to try and get a good balance between the white sky and and white snow...

Matt,

We had a week to get the Cruisers to Fairbanks, Ak from Salt Lake City. Staging th rigs. Scott Brady and a few others then took the Cruisers to Prudhoe Bay, where Expeditions 7 begins. I rtode along with Jeremiah and another from the Slat Lake shop of Proffitt's Cruisers. The guy that one the newsletter contest, Shawn Smith, was also with us.

The route we took to get to Fairbanks was along the Alaskan Highway, with a night spent in Haines Alaska.

Beautiful Trip. Did you get to drive some? I wonder why they got RHD vs LHD. Maybe that was the only available at the time?

Wes, I did get to drive a little, mainley moving the rigs around the parking lot etc. Not being on the allowed driver list, I didnt want to chance anything. They got the rigs in New Zealand since that's one of a few countrys that offers that body style/engine combo.

Some more pics:

More of the Ice Field Highway and Jasper National Park.
