Welcome to the Yukon!

The ride from Skagway took us through BC and then into the Yukon. This section of road simply leaves one saying "wow". We could barely keep our eyes on the road the scenery was so epic.

The obligatory cavity search by Canadian customs, then we were on our way. Made a stop in Whitehorse for a coffee, bustling capital city. Onward… The Yukon is a vast territory with minimal to no people on the roads most of the time, countless lakes, rivers, spruce and deciduous trees, making us feel quite small in comparison. Lots of road signs that look similar to ^^^ which means uneven road. One area was quite gravelly, muddy, and greasy .

Made it safely to Carmacks where we made camp for the night. Met some other bikers there from France, Columbia, US, and Argentina. Federico from Argentina has been traveling for a year now on a 250cbx Honda.

Today we traveled from Carmacks to Dawson City—a cool old mining town. Dirt roads through town and most of the buildings appear to be from the early 1900s. Lots of adventure bikes in town to our surprise. Apparently the bikers and some big adventure bike outfitters are here to watch the summer solstice and do some sort of poker run.
