Last weekend, I took a trip with my son and one of his friends, up the Dalton Highway.  I’ve been traveling this road, occasionally, for the last 18 years, and there are changes.  Some are for the better, as much of the gravel is now paved, and even those sections where the gravel remains are now treated to reduce the dust.  But there are other changes that are more disturbing, like the fires that have occured, mostly in 2004 and 2005, burning large sections of the forest next to the roads.  But this trip, I found a couple of photographs in the burns that seem to have a sense of grace…
