Alaska Highway was built by the US Army, considered one of the

Fort Nelson to Whitehorse blue skies for the first 6 hours and
not so blue for the next 4.

get picís of the goats and buffalo the others were too shy

Buffalo going bald
Downtown Whitehorse, a Metropolis
Hotel with Dancing Girl and Internet
The Man and his Dog
The Aliens have landed
My Bike started leaking Oil and I had to make a temporary repair
that may have to last permanently
Whitehorse to Dawson City
Ignore the straight line it came from another GPS power connection glitch
Dawson City, all the buildings look like they are from a movie set
I was told buildings that do not conform are not allowed
Very touristy, dirt roads with boardwalks and sunshine
On the way there
Yukon River Ferry and its free
The Governor's Mansion
The Leaning Tower of Dawson
This time it was the Rear Brake Master Cylinder.
I was lucky the dealer in Seattle had a kit in stock
The outskirts of the town are covered in mining rubble from years gone by
Puller and Jeff, rescued Huskies
New breed of Genetically Modified Husky
Like I said Boardwalks and Dirt streets, all that's missing is JW and his six gun
