Am following on Instagram, super jealous, looks amazing..
Oh my god, this is amazing! What a trip.
After just over a month on the road our time in Alaska / Yukon / (a tiny slither of) BC is over - 1800km and more mountain views than I thought were possible.
The stretch across Yukon and back in to Yukon has been mind blowing, quieter roads (although still super wide) and an amazing spread of landscapes.
We finally came across some grizzly bears but fortunately no drama. The first was a pair of biggish cubs on a lake foreshore a few hundred metres away, perfect viewing. The second was a single bear feeding on plants at the side of the road - he was set on eating and after waiting a while we realised he wasn’t going to retreat back in to the woods. Fortune timing with a car heading our direction meant we could slowly convoy past him with no issues - still a bit spicy for 2 Londoners used to seeing nothing more than foxes and pigeons.
Tonight we board the ferry down to Bellingham, WA and will then head north to Vancouver for week to see friends before starting the ride south through Washington, Oregon and California. We’ll spend the ferry route planning and trying to work out how many sights we can see along the way while keeping to our rough schedule. I think we’re going to try and take in some of the islands West of Bellingham and Seattle and loop round the Olympic National Park - adds 400 or 500km to the more direct route but I think it will be worth spending more time in the area.
