Au Revoir Canada

After the crowds of Jasper and Banff, we just needed to chill out for a few days and found the perfect place to do this – the small town of Golden. We camped in the Municipal Campground on the Kicking Horse River, great name, and relaxed and watched the huge freight […]


Banff, just a bigger Jasper

From Jasper, we headed South on the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) through forests, past lakes, mountains and glaciers. Unfortunately, it was semi-overcast and hazy (we later found out that the haziness was primarily due to smoke from forest fires) so the views were not as great as they could have […]


Refugee camp in Jasper 1

We rode to Jasper in Alberta and got a real shock at how busy it was. Everything was booked and the only place to camp was an overflow campsite about 8km out of town. Place felt just like a refugee camp but at least Janette had managed to book us […]


Back to civilisation

  Arriving at the bottom of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway we turned onto Highway 16, the Yellowhead Highway, and headed East. It suddenly felt like we’d stepped into another world. All of a sudden there were lots of cars on the road, cattle in fields, horses in paddocks and fields of crops and hay. Gone […]


Stewart-Cassiar and Glacier Highways

There are two ways to go South in Northern BC – the Alaska Highway, which we had used to go to the Hot Springs, or the Stewart-Cassiar Highway (37). We had been told that the latter was the prettier route and that from this you could take the Glacier Highway […]


Watson Lake – Twice!

We had a quick stop at Watson Lake on our way to the Liard Hot Springs where we camped in the Provincial Park and then went into the town for dinner at Kathy’s Kitchen. I had an amazing wrap full of raw veg and salsa – very tasty and healthy […]


This is the Life – Liard Hot Springs

Liard Hot Springs were not on our intended route, but after the third person told us how great these were, we just had to do a 125 mile detour to go and see them and we were not disappointed. These hot springs were very different to the developed resort of […]


Whitehorse

We rode from Dawson to Whitehorse on the Klondike Highway, which should be paved, but had lots of stretches of road construction which meant riding through numerous gravelly parts – sometimes following a pilot car and crossing from one side of the road to another around the working trucks/rollers. After […]


Dawson City – yeehaw

Well what a town! Arriving at Dawson does feel a bit like being in a Wild West movie set. The buildings from the gold rush days have been preserved and the town lives on its history. It was in Rabbit Creek (later renamed Bonanza Creek) that gold was discovered in […]
