The bears make a difference or Yukon feels different even if you walk along an old mining road. Vast and remote, not so picturesque.
The bear canister you get from the visitor center is small - too small for 10 days of food I would say or: you really have to think about the food that you bring - not too many single items that create a lot of little unused space. You get lot's of infos and advice from them but somehow they never really mention how hard it is to fit everything into a bear can. And I don't like that it's black. Not only because it's not waterproof I would bring a garbage bag to wrap it in - not in black. Or buy perhaps at least one BearVault, probably useful in Alaska as well - a bit larger, a bit lighter even though the lid is not as convenient.
Besides, check it out - you can always turn round and do some of the other stuff. I don't think route finding is that hard, the terrain can be more difficult than you are used to - but somehow one has to start, right?!
