Jasper > Radium Springs, 372km

Some pics of Jasper and Banff National Parks… As we got further south the smoke haze became quite bad, in fact we rode past where the recent fires had destroyed all the trees and there were still some areas smoking.  It’s only very recently that the smoke has lessened so that the mountains can be […]

Dawson Creek > Prince George, 422km > Jasper 389km

There are not too many petrol stations along this road.  All through where we have been travelling the gas stations are just big gravel areas sometimes with a cafe attached. This has the prize of the most complicated gas pump, Charlie had to even do a safety checklist before being issued a security number to […]

Watson Lake > Fort Nelson, 528km > Dawson Creek, 465km

  Had bumbleberry pie for lunch today – had to try it just because of the name! – was delicious, my pie-eating friend would have enjoyed it 🙂   There are a lot of petrol stations etc closed down along the highway, this one is still actually operating, even the old diesel pump.  Very honest […]

Whitehorse > Watson Lake – 453km

We saw a porcupine today for the first time ever, not quick enough for a pic though. I just love this road from Whitehorse to Dawson Lake, it just keeps beckoning us on.  We see beautiful views all day long, sometimes with lakes, sometimes with rivers.  Very little traffic on the road too.  A really […]

Fairbanks >Top of the World Highway > Dawson City > Whitehorse

Charlie’s front fork oil seals started leaking after doing the Prudhoe Road, so needed to get them replaced by Yamaha Fairbanks – they said people come in for this job all the time because of the dust and grit that gets trapped.  Will look for some gaiters to put on.   Fairbanks to Tok, 338km […]

Watson Lake to Whitehorse – 453km

Another great day’s riding, just loving it !!   The land is so vast, you come up over the crest of a hill and for as far as you can see its more mountains, rock outcrops, lakes, trees – and it just keeps going like that all day, day after day. See the little speck […]

Iskut to Watson Lake – 367km

Woke up to fog over Dease Lake and the temp was 10.  Whether cold or rain it doesn’t really matter to us, as we have the right gear to keep warm and dry – so its just weather. Glenn arranged for us to call in for a cup of tea with Jim and Sharon who […]

New Hazelton to Iskut – 458km

Today we travelled the Cassiar Highway, not many people live in this area, its pretty isolated.  Again lots of trees, mountains, and had a bit more rain but thankfully we missed the thunderstorms forecast again today.  Temps getting cooler as we head further north, and in fact up in Prudhoe Bay where we are going […]

Prince George to New Hazelton 449km

On the road by 8:00 and stopped for breakfast with these guys. People live in the middle of nowhere – mailboxes at the end of a country road. There are LOTS of trees in Canada – this is fairly typical of what we have seen today, trees as far as you can see. Charlie got […]

Lillooet to Prince George – 523km

The forecast for our route today was showers followed by thunderstorms starting at 10:00 and lasting for the rest of the day.  We saw the heavy black clouds building on the mountains so decided to get some dry mileage under our belts, and were on the road by 7:30.  We were dodging the rain well […]
