12. June 2000, Anchorage to Tok
So we drive into the wilderness... Our first two days are slightly relaxed concerning the competitive aspect (to get used to the new surroundings). Leaving Anchorage we immediately get our first impressions of the Alaskan landscapes and nature. We are on one of the main roads in Alaska (State Highway number one) but do not get to see many villages or towns at all. Surprisingly, there are a dozen groups of enthusiasts out on the highway to make photos. On our first day we see forests, marsh, lakes, rivers, creeks, snow-covered mountains and glaciers, pretty much what will expect us the following days but it is certainly breath taking.
Overall 1 hour 10 minutes penalty
