The Richardson Highway--Delta to Paxton

On the Richardson Highway south of Delta Junction. Donnelly Dome rises to the right.

The Alaska Range--Mt. Hayes, Mt. Hess and Mt. Deborah--as seen from the Richardson Highway, south of Donnelly Dome.

Black Rapids Glacier advanced three miles during the winter of 1937, threatening to engulf the highway. It has retreated since then until little ice is visible but the glacier left a scar across the face of the slopes.

The Delta River at Black Rapids

Augustana Creek cuts through a slope to join with the Delta River near Black Rapids.
