Worth the trip to visit this area to learn the history of the pipeline. Reading the information plaques helped to see the big picture. There are other exhibitions on the grounds to see and take pictures.

This is a little quick stop with some interesting and informative signage. If you make it to Alaska, it would be a shame to pass up the view of the Alaska Pipeline. Stop and take a picture.

This tour is well worth the money. You arrive at the gate and get an overview of the Alaska Pipe Line and how the company is concerned about wildlife and the environment. You can see the route the pipes take and the methods of installation, inspection and cleaning.

It was a big pipe with some informational signs. We did have a guide talk to us about the pipeline for 10 minutes - he was very interesting. This stop was part of our land excursion from our cruise. We were glad we saw it but a few minutes there was all we needed.

It was just 8 miles out of town. It was very interesting to get up close to the pipeline and know a little more about it.

Typical cruise style excursion. Too long in the gift store. Seemed like pushing sales. We got bored.

I presume this is the one on Steese highway on the way up to Chatanika Lodge. The placards are very interesting and well done and it is amazing to see the technical feat up close.

It was a big ol' pipe with some informational signs. We are glad we drove the few miles to see it, just to say we did. But a few minutes there was all we needed.
