There's also a cool riverboat in Whitehorse that is open for tours.

I've finally figured out what this thing is. It's a lunch truck for cannibals. First you choose the person you want to eat from the automat...
...and then they cook him/her for you!
Ingenious, but I'd rather just have a slice of pizza.

Subscribed. Great RR. It may even motivate me enough to do a RR from our Alaska trip last August...

Great ride report you two, I am very much enjoying your pictures and the story telling aspect. Love the history around Dawson.
I also appreciate your "glorp" concoctions, ..I have for many years made similar styled meals, one dish and simple, but I called mine.. "gorp", ..too funny, ..lol!
I look forward to reading/seeing more.

Day 15: Sunday June 27th, 2010
We had been in Dawson for five days, and while it was everything I was expecting, and more, it was time to move on.
But first I had to get the wild animal out of my tent.
Look at those fierce teeth!
Once the wild animal was evicted from the tent, and fed, we packed up camp and hit the road. Today we would cross into Alaska!
We took the ferry across the river.
And started on the Top of the World Highway to Chicken and Tok.
MAG is right behind me.
The Top of the World Highway lives up to it's name. Once you climb up on the ridge, it's a 79 mile long section of road so named because, along much of its length, it skirts the crest of the hills, giving looks down on the valleys below.
Alpine Tiger country.
See the rainbow?
Finally after two weeks of being in the road, we crossed into Alaska.
Passing a gas station.
We hit some rain and the road became very slippery.
I had a nearly bald street tire on the front of the KTM, and steering was 'exciting'.
Turn left to Chicken.
MAG took the lead for a while.
You don't see this kind of community every day.
We stopped to get some gas.
As I mentioned before, some vehicles have big fuel bills up here.
A little further down the road we stopped for lunch.
We're in Chicken now.
I fed the "attack Chicken".
And then ordered...
Chicken of course!!!
After a relaxing lunch, we decided to head on down the road.
On the way out of town we saw another large dredge.
Headed to Tok.
We rode through a very recent forest fire.
I later found out that it was less than a week ago.
In Tok, we stopped here to get more supplies.
In Tok we stopped at a store to get postcards and stickers.
I took pictures of the animals they had on display.
It had been raining for hours now, and we went to the Tundra campground because they had free hot showers.
Here I gave Tiger his Alaska sticker. He had always wanted to go to Alaska, and now he had. Good Tiger.
and yes, there are big mosquitoes here too.
This actually became a game for us. We took pictures to see who could find the biggest mosquito...
In a few days we would find bigger ones.
Stats for the day:
189 miles Moving average 39.9 Moving Time 4:49 Stopped 3:47 Total 8:32

I'm following your story with great interest, as I will be traveling much of the same route this summer during our family's 2 1/2 month journey from California to Alaska and back (not on bikes, however, as the kids are dynamos on their dirt bikes but still too young--8 and 11--for street licenses). It's great to see photos of the places that are just pushpins or dots on my Canada/Alaska wall map right now. I've heard a lot about the mosquitoes . . . looks like we might invest in some ThermaCell devices!
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to post about your adventure. I'm eagerly waiting for more!
