NWT

Not Worth Taking? Okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh. The Northwest Territories is a beautiful place. I really enjoyed seeing Wood Buffalo National Park and the waterfalls are spectacular in the NWT.Alexandra Falls

I’m glad we did this but I’m not sure I will ever travel this way again in July. Too many bugs and too much rain! The roads were okay in some spots and rough in others.

We saw lots of Bison.Bison Fighting

The salt flats make an interesting landscape. It was wonderful to see wolf tracks near the salt pile. Maybe if the bugs were not so bad, I would have worked this area a bit more.Salt Flats Wood Buffalo National Park

We hit Yellowknife and resupplied. Couldn’t find a motel so we got a campsite at the edge of town. We got up early the next day to look for something to photograph. I found Yellowknife a bit frustrating. I was hoping to find a nice view by Great Slave Lake but no luck. I did find a nice reflection of the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre.Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre

There have been several times in the past couple of days that I have thought, that’s all I can take. Maybe we should turn the car around and pack it in. After a shower and a good night’s sleep, we carry on.Mosquito

Yech! Is that your arm the mosquito is sucking on??? Sorry you were somewhat discouraged with this part of your trip. The photos you did get are gorgeous though. Hope the rest of your journey is great!
