Top of the World Highway

The road from Dawson City in the Yukon to Chicken in Alaska is called the Top of the World Highway. It started with a ferry crossing of the Yukon River and included a wild ride through mountain roads that were paved, chip seal, unpaved, gravel, and dirt. There were potholes, wash board, maintenance activity, and all manner of road hazards to watch for. To make it more interesting, it was overcast and rainy making it difficult to see the road. Unfortunately, we couldn't see the views that were beyond the clouds. Don't take this road unless the weather is clear.
