Add another moose to the wildlife list!
We drove the short distance to Pelly Crossing yesterday morning. It is the home of the Selkirk First Nation, and home to the Northern Tutchone native culture. Population of the town is about 300 people. They have a gas station and store on the highway, as w...

It wouldn't be like us to back off from a little more exercise
Once again, we woke up early and hit the road right away. It's pretty tough to find internet access up here in the middle of nowhere and we like to get our internet work done as early as possible in the morning. So sometimes that means getting to the neares...

We finally met a bear on the hiking trail!
We woke up yesterday morning to rain. Not a heavy downpour at all, but not a drizzle either. Just a steady rain. The plan was to go visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, about 20 kms (13 miles) northwest of Whitehorse. And, conveniently located another kilomet...

The land called Beringia. If you're headed to Yukon and Alaska, you should know this...
We had never heard of Beringia. But, now that we know about it, we think it's important for other travelers to this region to know some of the ancient history of how Alaska and Yukon came about... before, during, and after the last ice age. Along the Alaska...

A beautiful day in and around Whitehorse, Yukon!
We were sitting having breakfast yesterday morning where we had overnighted at the Yukon College beside the Yukon Arts Centre. There was not a cloud in the sky, and we were thinking of heading down to Miles Canyon to do some hiking. Ruth was reading some of...

Managed to get a two hour hike done yesterday.
It was raining fairly steady when we woke up, and it didn't let up until after 10:00am. The forecast said it might be okay after that, so we went for a hike along a trail by the Yukon River near here. We actually weren't sure if we were going to be able to ...

We don't really have a schedule to keep
We actually slept in yesterday morning. And again this morning! Partly due to the fact that we were up late the night before, but also due to the fact that it's light out well up to midnight. In fact even after midnight, there is still light in the sky. So ...

Not everything goes according to plan
Not one of our better days, but it still ended up with a glass of wine, so it wasn't all bad! The plan was to go for a drive up to Quiet Lake on the old Canol Road. There would not be any internet access up there, so we figured we would pay for internet acc...

An interesting place, and a worthwhile stop
Hit the road again at 6:45am Thursday morning. This time, we wanted to make it to the community of Teslin, 130 kms (81 miles) west of where we had parked for the night. The Alaska Highway to Teslin crosses the border back into British Columbia for one stret...

Beautiful, rugged Yukon scenery
We woke up at the Watson Lake airport and headed into town to use the free wifi at the visitors center. There's a cell signal around Watson lake, but for some reason my phone won't connect to the data. It shows a UMTS connection with no data, but the callin...
