Carcross, Yukon Territory

Monday morning. 2584 miles cycled so far.

I am in Carcross, Yukon, the last town before Skagway, Alaska, with about 65 miles to go. The weather in the mountains to the south looks a bit iffy, but I am ready to head out on the final leg.

Rain, hot sun, black flies, mosquitoes, and nice mountain views were a part of my crossing of the southern Yukon in the past few days. My knees ache, leg muscles cry out with lactose burnout after every stop, and my rear end has been pounded into hamburger by the bouncy "pavement" of the local highways. but this has been an energizing trip. More soon.
