I have driven the Steese Highway twice. It is a part sandpacked, part gravel road. It rolls through hills, goes past gold mining towns, and goes to the small town of Central, and Arctic Circle Hot Springs Resort. Sadly, this gem, the resort is closed. In its recent past, every room was lovingly decorated in Victorian style--what a surprise my first time. The area is home to hot springs. The highway runs approximately 8 degrees below the Arctic Circle. It ends at Circle on the Yukon River. I have not drilven that and was advised not to in my subcompact. Frost heaves and not much traffic in case of a breakdown. I was alone most of the time from about 45mins past Fairbanks to Central. Not spectacular, but interesting. A slice of real Alaska
