I now work for The State of Alaska as an Electrical Inspector, assigned to The Joint Pipeline Office (JPO).
My responsibility is to inspect all the electrical systems along the 800 mile long Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS)
from Pump Station 1 in Prudhoe Bay to the Tanker Terminal in Valdez. In the course of my job, I get to see some of
the most beautiful country in the world. I hope you enjoy a few of the pictures Iíve taken while on the road.

Take care, Dan O'Barr

There are many herds of caribou in the area.

Look closely in the lower right corner and you will see 4 or 5 Dall sheep
There's one more in the middle on the very left side.

Thatís the Pipeline and the Dalton Highway crossing "The Mighty Yukon River" in the background.
Now if I could just find a grizzly bear to wrestle, Iíd be a true Alaskan.
