97 from Crater Lake to about the Washington border kinda sucks as far as the riding goes. About the Washington border to BC is nicer and 97 from from Vernon to Jasper is awesome.

If riding up 97 make sure to do the 5 mile detour to check out Leavenworth Wa. Kind of a tourist town but cool.

Camping is more difficult in Canada. Of the 7 provincial parks I pulled into I wasn't able to get a single campsite(August). People said they sell out in like January/Feb. Don't plan on getting a last minute campsite in a provincial park. Jasper and Banff had overflow camping that was available.

I had to cancel Alaska last summer due to the border being closed so can't really comment on the Alaska part.

Thank you everyone for all the ideas.
Looking at the border situation, I have to work on plan-B

I might fly to anchorage ( ride delton for a week ) and start another thread for 15 to 20 days trip

Did it in 2019 to the tip of Prudhoe Bay Alaska. Left on the 24th of June and returned 25TH of July. Beautiful scenery and rodes. I would carry spare gas just in case. Two best things i took on the trip was my Aerostitch and air seat cushion. Good luck and ride safe
