Welcome North! ExploreNorth is the world's largest Web site that focusses on travel in, and the history of, Alaska, the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and northern British Columbia. The site currently (December 2014) consists of 24,138 files (approximately 5,000 pages) taking up 1.39GB of space.
The thousands of pages of information rely heavily on photography, both historic and current, to share our passion for this region.
A major rebuild is currently underway, and the site search engine is the best way to find much of the information until new navigation is created. In particular, the community and highway guides that are an important part of the site for many of our readers are being re-designed and re-written.
This Week's Features:
Early Alaska Highway Postcards
The Alaska Highway has been a popular subject for postcards since it was built, and we've posted over 50 of them, mostly from the 1940s.
Driving from Anchorage to Edmonton in 1948
I've posted 79 scans from a collection of 160 Kodachrome slides documenting a drive from Anchorage to Edmonton in September 1948, driving and camping out of a 1941 Pontiac.
Face of northern Alaska pitted by tundra fire
Fanned by a warm wind that curled over the Brooks Range, the Anaktuvuk River fire burned for 3 months in 2007, leaving a scar visible from space.
