Northern lights & Davidson Ditch

Here are more photos of our late summer camping trip up the Steese Highway.  Chilly, but hardly a cloud in the sky…

You’ll see Davidson Ditch, a water pipe built in 1920s, that runs 90 miles along the Steese Highway.  It used to bring  about 180,000 gallons of water per day to the gold dredges in Fox, Alaska from the Chatanika River.

  5. Great photos i have only just noticed this blog and i love the fact that you share so many photos of Alaska. I got invited for 3 trips on the dalton highway by lisa kelly but sadly don’t have the money to go there. So seeing these photos really help seeing what i can’t see in real life.

    Jack I’m a veteran and new CDL holder been over road for 3 months but I want the chance to do what you do. What can I do to achieve this and if you have your own trucks or fleet please take me under your wing

      Jack doesn’t own his own truck or company so can’t make any of those decisions, and he doesn’t think Carlile is hiring, but if you were able to manage to get hired by Carlile he would do his best to help you out. Good luck Nicholas.
