Day 8 296 miles The Top of the World

The turn off is a few miles east of Tok and away you go on gravel to Chicken, Alaska and the Top of the World Hwy. So named because they cut the road along the top of a ridge that has unobstructed views for miles.

This drops you into Chicken and a great breakfast.

Try the cinnamon rolls. Everything is fresh baked.

Up the hill again and head for Boundary, Alaska.

There's a sign saying they serve the best coffee in Boundary. Of course the place is closed.

New TourTech Arctic accessories

Just a few miles and into the coolest border crossing I have ever seen.
Miles from nowhere. The staff works 7 days on, 7 off. The views are tremendous.

Just so you understand where this is...

It's all downhill to Dawson City but first you need to ride the free ferry caross the Dawson River. This little boat hauls ass all day and it just crashes into the bank and drops the ramp. Every one scrambles off and the next group jumps on.

Then there's this boat on the main road. Don't know why...

nd if you ride a KTM you have to stop here.

Otherwise I camped at Moose Creek Campground. If I could recommend. Don't stay here. There are a lot of places farther along. I was just being lazy and I paid for it the next day when I did the Campbell HWY
