When leaving Alaska we took the appropriately named "Top of the World" back into Canada.
The border crossing was like the last time, quite friendly and quick. The highway runs ovr mountains with some beautiful views into the valleys below. The last part of the road is across the Yukon River - there being no bridge at this point, the only way across is by a free ferry crossing.

I arrived Sunday evening and took a taxi to the staff house, which I will mention cost double the amount that it would have cost me in Penticton.
