Post your pictures of riding in the NWT & Yukon

With all of the interest in the new road to Tuk I thought a thread just on northern photos would be great.

June 30, 2009 North of Eagle Plains enroute to Inuvik

Hey, Bill - That shot looks like it was taken from near where I turned back this past summer, before you get to the first ferry crossing. Wish I'd gone all the way but time constraints prevented it.

Your new thread sounds like a good idea - it's time to showcase the rugged beauty of Far North Canada in a thread of its own. There are photos from myriad ride reports scattered throughout the forum, but require a lot of searching to locate. In addition, a thread was begun of just Dempster photos: Lure of the Dempster that might assist in your endeavour.

Agreed! Time and "life getting in the way," constraints have prevented me from returning to the north…I'd like a few photos to refresh my memories of my last visits!

Yes the Yukon amazing.

And one of my favorite things I enjoyed about the campgrounds was they all were $12-----and all had a picnic table, fire ring and free firewood !!! all you wanted.

Yukon Spring Birds. Think you can climb that willow? Hunker Creek Road, Dawson area.

On the Dominion/Sulphur Creek loop - don't think the Dempster is the only interesting back road. Lots of neat junk is out there.

Let's not forget the Atlin area, almost the Yukon.

KLR650 was just fine to get on top.

Or here.

Take a run at it, Billy!

The Silver Loop is also a nice side trip

The ride out to Mayo and then on to Keno is great. From Mayo you can do a ride on a rough double track out to Keno, make a run up to the sign post hill, also a rough road, and then ride fast gravel back to Mayo, all in an afternoon.

Looking southwest and on our back into BC after having spent some time with our sister who lives in Fort Simpson NWT.

Hope to get back out into the extreme NW summer 2014.

Any day on the bike is a GOOD day!
