Other beautiful drives include State Route 120 through Yosemite National Park, Route 198 through Sequoia National Park, Route 116 through Sonoma County, and Route 4 through the Stanislaus, El Dorado, and Toiyabe National Forests. California is so large and the terrain so varied that it would be nearly impossible to list all the scenic routes.

It passes through Homer, Soldotna, Sterling, Girdwood, Anchorage (my birthplace and home for roughly 13 years), Palmer, along the beautiful Matanuska river and glacier, and through Glenallen before ending in Tok.

There are only 12 State Highways in Alaska, so I can easily customize this pattern for any of your favorite drives. Some of my favorite drives include Highway 1, also known as the Glenn Highway, along the Matanuska Glacier,

and Highway 4 from Glenallen to Valdez. Highway 4 is also called the Richardson Highway, and it includes some amazing views of the volcano Mt. Wrangell
Willow Lake and Mount Wrangell, Wrangell Saint Elias National Park, Alaskaand Worthington Glacier that comes pretty close to the highway.
