Portrait from the Road: Tasha & Carley

Two spirited young women stand alongside a highway hitchhiking on the Klondike Highway in Yukon Territory, Canada. (Seth K Hughes)

Dawson City, Yukon

These two unlikely hitchhikers were stranded on a rather seedy and remote section of the Klondike Highway north of Whitehorse in the Yukon interior. With charm like this, how could we resist giving them a lift? We took them all the way to their final destination – Dawson City. When I told them they were hitching with a lot of stuff, they replied “were moving.” Ha!
