1601-Atigun Pass, AK

Atigun Pass is a high mountain pass across the Brooks Range in Alaska. At 4,739 feet, it is where the Dalton Highway crosses the Continental Divide. This is the highest pass that is maintained by Alaska road crew. Atigun is the only pass crossed by a road and has been featured in the “Ice Road Truckers” television show and others. May a trucker has crashed and died on this pass, and I was excited to traverse it myself. My lucky day was that no one else was on the road and I got to ride the entire pass by myself. Check out the video.

Up the pass. There was no other vehicle on the pass and I had it all to myself.

This is the valley after coming down the pass. This goes on for miles.

This is a frequent occurrence on the Atigun Pass during the winter. This is the Ice Road Truckers show type of stuff.
