From Fairbanks we headed towards Tetlin Junction and the Top Of The World Highway.



We got wet before we arrived in Chicken!

Downtown Chicken




Then it was on to the border crossing back into the Yukon




The U.S. side

The border crossing is at 4100 ft. elevation. A short distance up the road is the high point, just over 4300 ft.




We saw a wolf up here but it was to fast for the cameras. I really enjoyed this road. for me it was a high point of the trip. No pun intended . Next stop was the Yukon River crossing.





Getting ready to unload



Our camp for the next two nights. I don't remember the name of the park but it was in Dawson City. Hot showers and laundry.
Drinking Yukon Jack in the Yukon! Just doesn't get any better than that.

This was an interesting building, all the siding and trim was sheet metal


Downtown Dawson City



Where did all the marmalade go?

After breakfast we did some sightseeing



The Klondike River(clean) is mixing with the Yukon

A bite of lunch


Then up to the Midnight Dome



The Klondike enters the Yukon

After the Dome it was off to see Dredge #4



Parks Canada is restoring this dredge. We missed the tour but still got to look around outside.




The dredges were powered with electricity. in 1959 the dam above this one burst leaving it buried this deep.


The flood ripped the buckets off

Tailings piles are still visible all around this area
