The Yukon Quest is a 1,600 km ( over 1,000 miles) dog sled race between Whitehorse ,Yukon and Fairbanks , Alaska. The start and finish lines switch between the two cities every year. Visitors to the offices in Whitehorse can pick up literature about the race and purchase stickers, badges and posters.
Our reason for stopping in was for a short visit with a new RVing friend , Sue of Sue's RV Adventures. She grew up in the Yukon and has recently , along with her husband , moved back to the area. They’ve taken many RV trips through British Columbia , the Yukon and Alaska. Sue has a great website with wonderful photographs and detailed descriptions of the sights along the major highways. Check out her website if you’re planning a visit or if you just want to see the beautiful scenery.
