Alaskan trip Mr. and Mrs. Milton Partington recently returned from a 10,000 mile trip which took them to Alaska, via the Alaskan Highway. While on the Highway in British Columbia, they drove through an area, which just days before, had been devastated by a forest fire and the road had been closed several days. They visited a most interesting and informative museum depicting early Alaskan history at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. Travelling between Fairbanks and Anchorage, Milton did some salmon fishing (successfully). Mt. McKinley was easily viewed and recognized as it rose so majestically above the surrounding peaks. In Anchorage, they stayed with a cousin, Faye Emerson, who showed them around Anchorage and showed places of in- terest while driving to Homer. This is a beautiful place about 200 miles south of Anchorage and the farthest one can drive west is North America. One side road took them to a closeup of a glacier. Many rivers are glacier-fed and are a slate color due to sediment and extremely cold water. These are apt to be treacherous and the or- dinary traveler is advised to stay away from them. They came home on part of the Alcan but turned off in the Yukon to take the Cossiar Highway south. This joins the main high- way from Prince Rupert, British Columbia. In Alberta, they drove through Jasper National Park which is part of the Rocky Mountains.

Alaskan trip Mr. and Mrs. Milton Partington recently returned from a 10,000 mile trip which took them to Alaska, via the Alaskan Highway. While on the Highway in British Columbia, they drove through an area, which just days before, had been devastated by a forest fire and the road had been closed several days. They visited a most interesting and informative museum depicting early Alaskan history at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. Travelling between Fairbanks and Anchorage, Milton did some salmon fishing (successfully). Mt. McKinley was easily viewed and recognized as it rose so majestically above the surrounding peaks. In Anchorage, they stayed with a cousin, Faye Emerson, who showed them around Anchorage and showed places of in- terest while driving to Homer. This is a beautiful place about 200 miles south of Anchorage and the farthest one can drive west is North America. One side road took them to a closeup of a glacier. Many rivers are glacier-fed and are a slate color due to sediment and extremely cold water. These are apt to be treacherous and the or- dinary traveler is advised to stay away from them. They came home on part of the Alcan but turned off in the Yukon to take the Cossiar Highway south. This joins the main high- way from Prince Rupert, British Columbia. In Alberta, they drove through Jasper National Park which is part of the Rocky Mountains. The whole trip was a series of spectacular beauty with high moun- tains and many lakes and rivers in the Northwest and the wide, open prairies of the Western Canadian Provinces.
