Sign Post Forest

The Sign Post Forest is one of the more unique roadside attractions on the road to Alaska. This is in Watson Lake, my first stop in The Yukon Territory. Always worth a stop to stretch the legs and see where people are travelling from. IMG_7959.JPG


Coastal Mountains

The mountains definitely change as you get closer to Alaska. They are bigger, a little darker, a little more sinister. This is in far Northern British Columbia.

Moricetown Canyon

This is one of my favorite pull-offs on the road to Alaska. There are lots of mountains and lakes and things which I obviously love and will share, but this is a little drop of civilization in the big open wilderness. The is Moricetown Canyon in British Columbia.

British Columbia Mountains

These mountains were early on in my journey North to Alaska! Somewhere in British Columbia.
