Loved this highway! Loved the bends, curves and lack of our cars. Put it on your must drive list. Please note that 98% of this Highway has NO cell service which adds to the charm and call of the open road.

We did the Alcan on the way to AK and the Cassiar on the way back,while we thought the Alcan was more scenic the Cassiar had more wildlife.Leaving Tatogga Lakes we saw two Moose and five black bears for a days drive.

This was the return leg of our annual cross country drive (NYC return, 10k miles in two weeks) with Alaska completing our 49th State. Our general rule is to avoid using the same route twice and we had used the Alcan on the way up...More
