In the Yukon, south of Beaver Creek, looking southeast.
Sign just south of Watson Lake, showing locations of various businesses.
Small herd of bison, north of Liard Hots Springs. Larger herd (approx. 3x) seen later, but one stop for bison photo was enough.
Better shot of bison with telephoto.
Muncho Lake from viewpoint above north end.
Mountains above alluvial fan just south of Muncho Lake.
Relocated Milepost 0 at Dawson Creek. This is my third bike to have its photo taken here, and the second time it has been photographed here.
Icefields Parkway through Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. The Canadian Rockies at their finest.
More Icefields Parkway in Jasper.
Second view of mountains across Sunwapta River along Icefields Parkway, Jasper Nat'l. Park.
Small roadside waterfall in Banff National Park. Have another photo somewhere of this falls I took in January, 2000.
On the road to Takakkaw Falls. This sign was above the switchbacks, and shows the recommended method for negotiating the descent with anything larger than a Volkswagen.
Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park near Field, British Columbia. Second highest waterfall in Canada. Taken just moments after sunset, I got there too late for the photos I wanted. Good excuse to return some day.
Shell Canyon in the Big Horn Mts. in Wyoming. Looking up the canyon from a small pullout about halfway through it.
Another view up Shell Canyon. A small stream (Shell River?) runs below the left side of the highway.
Looking back down into Shell Canyon from near the top. At left center a small portion of the descending highway can be seen.
Looking up at the rimrock above the climb from Shell Canyon.
Sign on US14A about 1/2 mile from Burgess Jct., showing the steep, winding highway descending toward Lovell, WY.
Panorama from US14A on the west side of the Big Horn Mts. looking toward the Rocky Mts. south of Cody, WY.
Another view of the panorama from the west side of the Big Horns, this one looking directly toward Cody, WY.
US14A below the mountains, as it winds its way toward Lovell. The next photo, looking back, was taken from one of the curves at center right.
Looking back at the highway just descended. Since the temperature was back up into the 80's here (from a perfect 68 degrees above the 9300' level on top) I turned around and went back up through the twists and turns to enjoy the cooler temperatures at the higher elevation. The weather on top was so beautiful, I considered abandoning the remainder of my trip and just riding back and forth on top of the Big Horns. :^)
Well out of the mountains now, as seen from a highway overpass, the sun is about to rise above the featureless landscape just west of Wall, SD (home of the famous Wall Drug).
After a few minutes wait, and a mile or so down the road, the sun finally makes its appearance over the flat South Dakota plains.
Upon entering the town of Clark, SD on US212 from the west I came upon this field of 8 matching 1976 Ford LTDs. The owner, Ken Bell, has entitled this display "The Parade". He has other, less extensive, articles displayed around his property.
Headed back home: Hotel at Wonowon on the Alaska Highway (Alcan to us old-timers). It was raining when I arrived the night before, so the desk clerk suggested I park the bike under the protecting porch roof. The night before, there was an older Gold Wing also parked on the porch, with the owner headed south after touring Alaska.
Fall colors about 15 miles west of Fort Nelson.
