FYI to Alaska travelers

 

The Sockeye Wildfire has closed the Parks Highway off and on the past couple of days and is now in excess of 7800 acres. Located near Willow and reportedly heading south. At times officials are escorting vehicles through the area so expect long delays. Officials suggest checking with 511 and the Borough hotline @ 907-761-3700 for updates and possible closure. Alternate routes are the Richardson and the Glenn Highways for now.

 

Safe travels

If you go to the Anchorage newspaper and rv.net forums under the title of Alaska, there is a gal that gives good reports on the developments of the fire. Last year when we there we visited quite a few of those areas. Willow is a big home area to Iditarod mushers and dogs. They had I believe what was called the Funny Fire just outside Soldotna. We rode down to the area, couldn't really see much but a visitors center had very good story and photos. A week after we left the area, they putting on a huge Thank You to all who helped with the fire.
