Dust 2 Dawson 2013 – Day 4 – Dawson to Denali Highway, AK



The next morning we were up early and on the road by 8. The plan was to make it to Tok, AK for the night. As with the previous morning, there was a thick fog covering Dawson.

We crossed back over the AK/CAN border very easily with no issues and stopped in Chicken again for lunch. Along the way we came across another biker who had a flat. We stopped along with another rider to help out and eventually got his tire plugged and back on the road again.

Steve and Gail were going to head down South towards Glennallen and camp at one of the state parks along the way. I decided to go further West so that I could ride the Denali Highway the next day. We said our goodbyes and both took off, but only after I had some Coffee ice cream.. it was after all a fairly hot day for Alaska 😉
