Routes – Yukon Territory

Yukon Territory, Canada
September, 2003
Through Canada’s northernmost border entry, we drove Top Of The World Highway about 50 miles into Yukon Territory, set up tent, and talked of the day’s events. I remember we leaned on the car’s hood drinking whiskey straight from the bottle – and watched the aurora borealis swirl the sky.   
The next morning:
Top Of The World Highway took us to Dawson, where the only way into town is by crossing the Yukon River via the George Black Ferry. Brad drove us aboard and, within half an hour, we were in a warm diner eating breakfast and drinking coffee. From there it was back to the ferry, across the river, then south on the AlCan/Klondike Hwy.
