Legend goes that the people that named the place wanted to call it Ptarmigan but didn’t know how to spell it so they settled on Chicken.

I’m in Beautiful Downtown Chicken, which consists of three storefronts.  We stopped for burgers and now I’m enjoying a great cinnamon roll.

We’d like to make it another 20-30 miles today, and get to the Canada border sometime tomorrow.  These folks describe their trip from Tok to Dawson City, with a graph of their elevation on the way.  We’re at mile 80 right now, and as you can see, we’ve got a ton of climbing to do.
