A very long day


But not a long way. We left Whitehorse about 8:30 AM this morning and finally arrived in Chicken, Alaska about 8:00 PM tonight. There is no cell tower for many miles so this won’t be sent until Wednesday. Most of the roads we traveled were gravel and we did not spend much time taking photos. Lots of the time we were only able to do about 25 MPH without jarring our teeth out. We might have traveled 300 miles. Most was in Canada.

We did get a brief respite after checking in with US Customs as a whole 13 miles of newly paved road started there. Nice but brief and the rest of the way to Chicken was as bad as some of the worst Canadian highways.

We can now say we have traveled the “Top of the World Highway”. The views were impressive as you may be able to make out in some of the images I will post in this emai and the next one. Traveling the ridge/mountaintops one could see almost forever. The only impediment was smoke in the air from a forest fire somewhere west in Alaska.

Town of Dawson City where we got the ferry across the Yukon River.

Below are just two of the magnificent vistas to be seen along the “Top of the World Highway”.
