  • Bears

    Be aware that you entered the land of grizzlies and other wild animals freely roaming their territories. We are the intruders here and when you drive across the land always remember that the road is not only for the cars here. We were fortunate and lucky to spot a beautiful black bear crossing the road in front of us. We were as curious as the bear...

  • The Roads

    No sooner had we crossed into the Yukon (and hadn't made it to customs yet) that there was road construction. Well, it was called road construction but it was really "We'll tear up the road and leave it to work on something else." The pavement was missing or if they had repaved the road, it was in the "drop it here and don't smooth it out" fashion....

  • Services

    If you pick up a map of the Yukon Territory and you see certain places along the Highways marked as towns, don't bet they area. One such example is Silver City. I didn't even see this place and we drove by 2 times. Apparently there's an airstrip here but that's it. Still, it looks like there might be a good bet when looking at it on the map. Other...

  • Toilets and animalprove wastecontainers

    The toilets (called outhouses here) all look the same. Every basic campground or parking at the highway has two of such green houses. Inside you will find toiletpaper and a toilet bowl. There is no water, so only a deep hole in the ground to collect the stuff.Most outhouses have a rock in front of the door. This rock is placed in front of the door...

Without some sort of repellent, I think that I would have found the whole experience quite unbearable.Well at the airport in Whitehorse I saw a t-shirt with the image of a giant mosquito attacking a person. Underneath was the caption...

  • Easy Does It on Gravel Roadways

    This sign on the Alaska/Yukon border pictures an Alaska Highway Patrolman and a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman. It shows that the speed limit on both sides of the border is approximately the same, 55 mph in Alaska and 90 km/h in the Yukon Territory. Both countries require that you buckle up, and they cooperate in enforcing the law.However, I...

  • Please Drive Safely - Yield to Wildlife

    Tears come to my eyes when I remember this little cub. Some ignorant driver ran him over leaving him for dead with a broken leg. He was surely not going to survive long. If you are driving through this wonderful area where wildlife is still plentiful enough that it will show up alongside the road as you pass by, please remember to give the animals...
