Top of the World to the Alaska Border

Free Ferry to Top of the World

Free Ferry to Top of the World Highway from Dawson City

We had elected to stay as far north as possible throughout our northbound journey, so we continued from Dawson City on the free ferry across the Yukon, which would bring us to the “Top of the World Highway”.

Top of World Sign

Like the sign says ...

While we have yet to take a really adequate picture of any of the breath-takingly precipitous highway through the clouds we tried our best to capture some of the feel of this road journey…

Top of the World Highway

Top of the World Highway. Dirt, Hairpin Turns and Precipitious Drops along with the Amazing Scenery.

The Top of the World Highway winds spectacularly through mountains on a mostly gravel road. The scenery matched the billing. We achieved border crossing at Poker Creek, Alaska – the most northern Alaska/Canada border check point…

We Didn't See a Creek or Get to Play Poker but at Least they Let Us Back In!

From there it was just a few more miles until it was official. We are in Alaska!!!

Back in the USA! Although it may not be as free as it once was, it's sure cheaper than Canada!
