Clinton Creek YT to Alaska Highway AK

6 September 2012 - Thursday

We had a good night alongside the Yukon River.  Somewhat chilly in the morning. 
Nice though! We hiked along the Yukon River for the morning dog walk.  There was evidence that others had been in the area ... these were not there the night before.

Bear tracks at Forty Mile, Yukon
Mother bear and her cub had recently been nearby

After the walk and packing up, it was time to head back to the Top of the World Hwy.

The colours were spectacular!

Clinton Creek Road was in good condition this year.
Back on the Top of the World Highway the fall colours continued to impress.

A beautiful spot to stop for lunch! Now time to carry on towards the Alaska Highway.
It wasn't long before the Alaska border crossing.

For more detail about the Taylor Highway, see the main page for it. The Taylor Highway has a different type of scenery than the Top of the World. In the fall, things take on a different hue.

On the Alaska Highway it was time to turn south towards home.  Figured we stop at the Lakeview Campground in the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge for the night.
