The Trans-Alaska Pipeline Is An Incredible Sight You Need To Add To Your Bucket List

The Pipeline runs right through the middle of Alaska, quite literally, and the oil and gas industries are the backbone of Alaska’s economy. If you happen to find yourself anywhere along the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, seeing it up close is pretty darn cool. It is simply amazing that a tube with a 48-inch diameter runs over 800 miles of Alaskan wilderness and keeps the crude oil pumping night and day throughout the year. Learn about the incredible engineering and see some sweeping Alaskan views when you stop to marvel at the Pipeline and the millions of dollars of oil that flow through it per hour.
