  • I'm very envious. I'd love to join you but it won't be this year. I can offer some suggestions but they are a bit dated. My last trip to the Yukon was in 1984. Camped most of the way and really enjoyed it. Highlights that immediately come to mind are:
    • Top of the World Highway from Dawson City to the Alaska Border.
    • Camping at Boya Lake Prov Park (Stuart Cassiar Hwy)
    • Ride into Telegraph Creek from Deas Lake
    • Side trip to Atlin. Awesome area.
    • Ferry from Haynes Alaska to Skagway

    We only got as far as Tok Alaska so we still have lots to see up there. I hope you have a great trip.

  • Ill be travelling up that way about then. I like to travel at my own pace and route but would be more than happy to meet up at the end of the day. Alaska is not really on the list this trip but has some wonderful stuff to offer. My goal is the Demster this time. Try to ride the Richardson highway if you have the time. It is kind off the radar as it cuts through the middle avoiding most of the bigger picture. Great road though. Plus watch for hidden pot holes, most of the roads are great but the odd time there will be broken pavement when you least expect it. more so the further North you go.
    Enjoy

  • That's awesome Dan. It will be nice to get some of your stories when we get together at some future campout. I didn't do Alaska this trip other than Hyder for a brief moment. But I so love the North and am already planning the next trip. Maybe with less rain next time though. :-0
