Jane in Chicken AK

The outhouse in Chicken AK

It's looking like rain (note the clean truck & trlr)

It rained, and it rained (note not so clean truck & trlr)

After much discussion and hesitation, fear of bad road & vehicle trouble, we decided to take the trip from Tok to Dawson City via Chicken and Top of The World Highway. We departed Tok (after having a wonderful b-fast of pancakes & reindeer sausage), and headed up toward the town of Chicken. They say it's paved up to Chicken, but there were more gravel patches due to road construction than pavement, so it was a pretty slow go, and that's the 1st 60 miles out of almost 200!! We got to the town of Chicken, had lunch at "Chicken Sue's (The Chicken Creek Café), and met the infamous Sue, owner, and very colorful person; the food was pretty good. We continued on over the Top of The World Highway, which is all dirt, heading toward Dawson City. It started to rain about mid way thru the journey, and the road conditions got worse as we went, slower & slower we crept along. Both the truck & trlr were covered in road slime by the time we got to Dawson City, around 8 pm - strait to the car wash we go, and it was a long day. I'm sure the ride would have been beautiful, but with the clouds & rain, we didn't get to see much.
