Yukon and BC: Trip report and pictures

After about 5 weeks and roughly 6000mi on the road, I have now returned back home. My trip took me up north through the Peace River region of BC into the Yukon. Then Whitehorse and Dawson Creek; and finally I drove into the Dempster Hwy almost 500km into the Northwest Territories before turning back. On the way back south through BC I took the Cassiar-Stewart, making an important stop near Hyder, AK, to see the Salmon Glacier. I saw 231 species of birds and some nice mammals too. Of course, there were some misses too, but overall I had a blast. It was a trip of a lifetime.

  1. Glad you got to enjoy my home province of BC! You went to some beautiful areas in the province and saw great birds. Also you can’t beat the nature and beauty of the Yukon in the summer.

    Thanks for sharing.
