Post card from the road 3

 




Today we crossed the Arctic Circle. I’m sitting at a gas station in Fort McPherson in the Northwest Territory. It’s a beautiful, warm sunshine-filled day. We filled up our gas tank and bought a few extra groceries just to have on hand. Services are few and far between here. 

We left our camping trailer in Dawson City because the road, the Dempster Highway, is unpacked with some very rough sections. We are staying in hotels during this portion of the trip. 

Now we are off to Inuvik where we will stay three nights. Thank you for all your comments!

Even I haven't been to the Arctic! This trip sounds so awesome - I'm so happy you are obviously enjoying every moment. Thanks for the great pix too. I going to pull up a map so I can see exactly where these wonderful places are located.
Stay safe and happy trails.
Hugs, Mary & Bob xx

It's great that all is going well and you're blessed with sunny weather.

Rather bleak, but I am surprised that it is warm, that a flower blooms, and that there are any hotels at all. Obviously, I know nothing about this place. Keep documenting and enjoying the adventure.

It looks so beautiful and so unusual without trees.

Fascinating! 8 countries have territories within the Arctic Circle, Canada being one of them. (Not to be confused with Antarctica, which is a continent).
