Dempster Highway, Yukon and Northwest TerritoriesAs well as visiting interesting towns we have had a scenic journey.
Kennicott Mine, McCarthy Road, north of Valdez, Alaska.
A pretty coffee stop on the Nabesna Road, a scenic dirt road to another old mine off the Tok cut-off road..
A friendly camper, Bart, took me out on the lake for an evening paddle at the Kendesnii campground.
This is the Post Office in Chicken. The plane comes to collect the mail twice a week!
The stunning views of theTop of the World highway, just after the Alaskan/Canadian border.
I like the scenic views! Here's another!This highway led us to Dawson City, an old gold mining town that sits on the mightyYukon River.
Buildings just about standing after their 100+ years!
We stocked up with food in Dawson City for another long dirt drive up to and beyond the Arctic Circle. 456 miles of Dempster Highway to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories!
Moose and friends! Then it started to rain....

We spot this crossing the road in the distance.
A lynx (unless anyone wants to tell us differently). I was very excited to see it.
Endless trees and lakes!
We returned south and spent many days in Dawson City enjoying their music festival and gold mining history which Stephen will write about in detail.
Klondike Highway, Yukon River
Last night, along the Klondike Highway, we ended up at a beautiful campsite overlooking Lake Laberge. We somehow managed to get one of the best sites with this view.
We saw these animals in the Yukon wildlife reserve.
A Lynx kitten, one of four kittens.
There are always arctic ground squirrels!
