Atlin to Whitehorse

The road to Atlin was unchanged other than the fact that the northern part (the Yukon portion) appears to be being prepared for an upgrade. There's a lot of new gravel and fills. Perhaps it's going to be paved.

The Alaska Highway from Jake's Corner to Whitehorse was great. No gravel. That means there's a total of 5.9 miles (9.5 km) of gravel between Dawson Creek and Whitehorse.


Whitehorse

We stopped for three days in Whitehorse. Spent the time shopping and sighseeing. Here are a few Whitehorse photos.

The Silver Trail is one of our favorite places to get off the highway and see some history away from the crowds.
