Two years ago today I was on the Top of the World Highway in the Yukon with Night Fury - my CTX 700. It was a goal to be there on my sister's birthday, whom I lost in a car accident 3.5 months before I began a journey through Canada. The loss changed the journey from an adventure to a compulsion and I took ashes with me, leaving some in every province and territory as I rode. Many times I thought I knew where ashes would be left and be surprised that it didn't feel right. She always told me when it was the right place. So the photos here are the 13 locations and the blog links are the stories of those days. Perhaps the photos will inspire someone for their own meaningful journey.

Hi. My name is Alyson. In 2018, I started this blog as I completed a 27,000 km motorcycle trip through every province and territory of Canada.
