Description

On an early morning (4:05) under low clouds illuminated by the rising sun, the Atigun River in Alaska's North Slope flows north from Atigun Pass to converge with the Sagavanirktok River ultimately emptying into the Beaufort Sea at Prudhoe Bay. At an elevation of 4,739 feet, Atigun Pass is where the Dalton Highway crosses the Continental Divide, and is the highest pass in Alaska that is maintained throughout the year.
