SWEET T DOES ALASKA | The Most Beautiful Drive In the United States?

Getting to Valdez is less about the destination, and ALL about the drive! I hope this gives you an idea of how absolutely stunning our journey was!

Hey! I’m Shannon and I’ve been traveling with my daughter Talula (Sweet “T”) and our 3 dogs since June 2016! We have visited 41 states, 2 Canadian provinces and have driven over 30,000 miles together! We currently live in and travel in a 30ft Class C Tioga Ranger motorhome, but we previously traveled with a Nissan Xterra that towed a 20ft Rockwood Mini-Lite travel trailer. We boondock (free-camp, dry-camp, off-grid) about 90% of the time. We’ve camped at Walmarts, Cracker Barrels, Cabelas, casinos, airports, roadside pull-outs, rest stops, and on public lands(BLM.) I am a photographer and writer, but most importantly, i’m a mother.
