Driving north from Dawson City along Dempster Hwy, you enter arctic landscape mostly devoided of trees with wide valleys stretching all the way to the horizon. It is the only drivable route to the Canadian arctic. One of the most dramatic vistas is the Tombstone Range with Mount Monolith in the foreground. The range resembles jagged shark teeth reaching towards the sky. The autumn comes early there with full colour display at the end of August.
