    I've said it before, and I'll say it again; DONT FORGET TO STOP AT LIARD HOT SPRINGS !!! It's the highlight of the trip, and your poor back'll be needin' a soak by then. Camp there overnight, leave early, and you'll likely see bison along the road past there. Keep your eyes peeled for caribou going around Muncho Lake, and stone sheep going over the pass at Stone Mountain. Stop in Whitehorse and do some window shopping downtown, it's got some neat little shops. Skip some rocks in Kluane Lake. That's about it.
    (p.s. bring extra tires )

    Spend some time in Whitehorse and make a trip down to Skagway, was an awesome trip and a very historic town. Take the train up to the border, it follows one of the old gold trails.
