The Richardson Highway turns out to be perhaps the most beautiful stretch of road I have ever driven on. There is a jaw-dropping photo opportunity around every bend. I could have snapped hundreds of photos along the way, but lucky for you, I did not. Even so, I had way too many good ones to display here, and had to pare them down. Despite my best efforts, I still had too many to put in one post, and so have broken the Glenn Highway into two parts. Mostly, I will let the pictures do the talking, even thought they are not adequate to truly portray the magnificent scenery along the way.
I am pretty sure that this is Mt. Wrangell, seen from the Cesna on the flight out of McCarthy:

The Chugach are an impressive mountain range. Even the "settled" parts of this huge state are so vast!
