Certain emptiness when the ride was over for me.

That's one of the advantages of living just 750 miles from Deadhorse. Although about the middle of January I begin to wonder if it really is an advantage.

how much new pavement a year?

Even with this brand new pavement north of Coldfoot, the Dalton is still a wilderness highway -
I am so glad I made it to Deadhorse 2 yrs. ago. We were at Coldfoot for the solstace.
Do they add pavement every year? about how much? I made the trip with a guy that had been up 2 yrs. before I did, he said there was quite a bit more than his previous trip. thanks, I really enjoy your pics. I would post mine but I'm a computer dinosaur and don't know how.

Looks like you had sunny weather - makes it a pretty nice trip, doesn't it?
Your second photo - taken from about Mile 90.2. That seems to be a popular spot, as I believe there must be two or three others in this thread taken from around that same area. That's where you get back onto pavement north of the Yukon River, and everyone must stop there and breath a sigh of relief.

Nice photos, give us some more.

There's no set amount, and some years all they will do is apply chip seal to a few miles of the gravel, and the following year it is potholed and worse than the gravel. The stretch around Mile 20 was done in '04 and '05. The good stuff from Mile 37 to 49.5 was done in '07 and '08, and the last 22 miles north of Coldfoot was done in '09 and '10. Prior to '04 the Elliott Hwy was still gravel from the edge of the Fairbanks-North Star Borough (about Mile 30) to the beginning of the Haul Road, so that was a nice change, having that paved. Some nice, tight twisties along there to enjoy.

Get yourself a Smugmug account and upload your photos to that. Makes it real easy to display them in forums, and it helps support this site.

Y'know we're holding back the best ones, don't you? We wouldn't want to be guilty of tempting you.
