    Default happy valley

    It is right where you say it is in happy valley, We hiked in there and all we heard was the buzz of planes flying over head. It is on the right side of the road, there was alot of construction going on there. My guess is the picture your looking at it to old. Not sure though. I know it is there been there seen it.

    Happy Valley is just a dirt runway with a few buildings. A few air taxis fly out of there and the Troopers. Deltana has a few buildings and uses it as a Base camp as well. No services of any type, no fuel, no food, ect...

    The grid is

    N 69.09.011
    W 148.50.030
    That should get you close. Here is a google earth picture of it. You can see the runway and the turnout on the east side of the Dalton Hwy. The runway is right by the Sag.


    Hope this helps

    You willl likely find Happy Valley airstrip on old sectional charts. I think it is either an old closed public strip or private strip.
