The Very First Road In Alaska Still Exists And Its History Is Captivating

Alaska is a relatively young state. Far before we even became a state, gold miners flocked to Alaska to explore the “Last Frontier.” What started as a pack trail, the Richardson Highway in Alaska is now one of the most scenic routes in the entire state. This road routinely gets added to many people’s bucket lists, and it’s no surprise why!
