    Visiting Ted in Teslin

    August 4, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    When I (Holly) first came to the Yukon I stayed with Ted, who helped me get set-up. How fitting that our first visit of the trip heading south was at his place in Teslin. We had a great visit catching up and swapping stories - thanks for having us Ted!

    Jenny & Anthony

    August 5, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    So glad to connect with these two driving north from a vacation on the Sunshine Coast. After cold bevys and an hour of catching up on each other's adventures of the past month, we grudgingly got back on the bikes and kept riding.

    Rancheria Falls

    August 6, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Rode our bikes right to the falls, narrow boardwalks and all, and had a swim. Made for a nice lunch break on an awesome day of crazy strong tailwinds.

    More Friends on the Road

    August 8, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Sam and Meagan found us on the side of the road on their way south for a family bike vacation. We had a great time chatting under the northern lights, a refreshing swim in the morning, and a few delicious groceries to add to our bags for the next days riding on the rolling Cassiar through the burn.

    Sacred Headwaters

    August 11, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Thanks to David MacKinnon, we were able to meet and benefit from the hospitality of Jim and Erma Bourquin in Iskut, stewards of the sacred headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena Rivers, who told us about the ongoing efforts their community has undertaken to preserve this sacred area for future generations. We were also thrilled to spend a rainy night in a comfy wall tent at their community camp and chat with passing friends about our travels through Stikine country (having also just paddled the lower Stikine with friends a few weeks earlier).Read more
