Yukon, NWT & Alaska Trip (Page 1 of 3) July 16 to August 06, 2005

2 Canadians, 2 Mexicans, the ride to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and Inuvik, NWT. As far north as you can go on a road in north America. Another incredible trip to remember for a lifetime.  Crossed the Arctic Circle twice once in Alaska and once in Yukon.  A total of 12,000km (most in the first 2 weeks) and approx. 3500km on gravel/mud.  We crossed the continental divide 10 times, were in 2 countries, 2 provinces, 2 territories, one state, and went through 3 rear tires on each bike.

To read more about this adventure see the detailed NWT, Yukon and Alaska Journal and as always pictures are a thousand words. In total there are three (3) picture pages. To proceed to NWT, Yukon and Alaska Page 2 and NWT, Yukon and Alaska Page 3.
