We've towed our fifth wheel across the Taylor Hwy and Top of the World Hwy many times. Many of my pictures are posted for other RVers to view on my website at http://yukonsights.ca/TopOfTheWorld.html and http://yukonsights.ca/TaylorHwy.html

It can be a beautiful drive if the weather is good and especially in the Fall - just drive to suit the road conditions which vary a lot

Sue has provided many great pics to this forum over the years. One spring she even arranged for a majestic elk to be standing beside the highway when we passed her place heading North! [emoticon] We are indeed fortunate to be able to learn from her wisdom and experience.

Maybe she will share her lynx video with us again in the future.

Thanks Sue, for all you do for us "tourists"!

My uncle Alaska Bob always talked about Chicken, his favorite town to visit.
I can also suggest the road from Haines, Ak at the end of the ferry system through the Yukon to Tok and Los Anchorage.
Right past Lake Kluane and Lake LaBarge that R Service wrote about in the Cremation of Sam McGee. There were over 100 Dall sheep at Sheep Mth. We met Athabascan families smoking salmon on a fire. The Northern Lights were wonderful. The Yukon could be the most beautiful place in the world.

The elk herd of about 180 tend to live on and around our place too and are sometimes on the Alaska Highway so be alert [emoticon]

Elk are introduced to Alaska. Seeing lynx is always a big deal.
