Back on the grid.
Not horse-related, but an update none the less...
After a week of motorcycling in the Yukon and into Alaska, we are finally back to civilization. Although it was an ambitious trip (over 6000 km in 7 days), but we also saw some amazing sights. Dawson City truly is the "land of the midnight sun". We rode into Alaska from Dawson over the Top of the World Highway. It feels like you are on the top of the world as you can see out for what seems like forever in all directions. I have never felt so small and insignificant in such a vast and wild place. The bears, caribou, moose, mountain sheep, mountain goats and wild buffalo all added to the ambiance.
We also rode up the Dempster Highway a ways to Tombstone National Park to see where the forest gives way to the sub-arctic tundra. The view was beyond spectacular. Had we not left all of our belongings at the campsite in Dawson, I would have liked to continue to the Arctic Circle.
Once my butt recovers from being in the saddle for 7 days straight, I will sit down and catch up on what is going on in the thread and post some pictures. I hope everyone had a great week!
