Tuk Road Fever in Dawson City
Midnight sun, Klondike fun in Dawson City …
In this town of almost constant daylight and historical architecture I feel I’ve stepped back into gold rush days. This place had 30,000 residents in its day, now it gets thousands of travellers and this year many of them seem to have Tuktoyaktuk road fever. Before visiting Diamond Tooth Gerties Gabling Hall I stopped at the visitor centre where one of the staff told me it’s been a very busy year as people drive the road. Dawson City is a logical (and fun) resting spot before making the push north.
Having good time in Dawson City as I prep for tomorrow on the Dempster Highway. Town is full of motorcycles headed for Tuktoyaktuk, the clean ones heading north, the dirty ones have reached their goal & are on their way home. A motorcyclist from Williams Lake had some of the best advice so far for tackling the muddy, bumpy Dempster …
