Yukon Territory

June 2008 - Vancouver Island to Yukon

The goal this year was to visit my home town of Beaver Creek on the longest day of the year.  The purpose was to spread my Dad's ashes and return him to the true loves of his life: Mom, the Yukon, and its people.

We also had one more highway to drive before being able to say we had driven every highway in the Yukon ... the Silver Trail to Mayo and Keno.
