The Yukon Territories


08072202.jpg

Many miles of the Alaska Highway pass through the Yukon Territory. This section of our journey is most notable for its long distances. We regularly went 200-300 miles between grocery stores, so learned quickly to load up when we did find food!

British Columbia


08081302.jpg

The official beginning of the Alaska Highway is in Dawson Creek, BC - for us it was the end! British Columbia also had more wildlife than we saw anywhere else - including bison, bears, Stone's sheep, caribou, and others. It was like going on safari on bikes!

Alberta


08090811.jpg

We had really looked forward to cycling the Icefields Parkway in Jasper and Banff National Parks - but the rain put a damper on that! For the entire week that we were in the parks, we dealt with rain, rain, and more rain. Even so, it was beautiful and we tried hard to relax and enjoy where we were.

David205 viewsI taught David and Daryl how to split wood. This was David's first time and he did pretty good. The campground we were staying at supplied the wood and our talkative neighbor supplied the axe.Sep 10, 2008
