Well i tried to go to Atlin but the road had just been gravelled and i was on road tires. It was like riding on Marbles so instead of risking a crash I chose to turn around and head back to Watson Lake instead. I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't get to see Atlin but there's always another time right? Watson Lake was interesting because although the forest fire was still burning they were "Piloting" us through it using a pick up truck as the pilot car for 75 kms. The area was devastated but sadly no photos as we were told there was no stopping. I'm now in Stewart BC again ....and damp...but moving on to Smithers this afternoon with a new goup of friends i met on the road at Dease Lake. Actually it waqs Dominic that I first met in Anchorage a week ago who i'm travelling with. He's on his way to Panama on a GS1200 he bought from Alaska Rider. There's a Horizons meeting in Nakusp that I'm interested in going to this thursday so maybe....? Not sure yet. I'm onh a very slow internet connection here in Stewart but hopefully the bear photos upload
A motorcycle trip into northern Canada and Alaska. Basically I'm hoping to acheive the two most northerly points accessible by road in both Canada and the USA in the same month. This journey will take me to Inuvik in the North West Territories via the Dempster Highway and then on to Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse Alaska via the Dalton highway. The bike and I will travel twice out of treeline and twice into the arctic Circle!
