Mainly Photography but a little of everything at times

Fort Resolution, NWT

with 2 comments

After travelling to Ulukhaktok with Skills, it was time to head off to Fort Simpson and Fort Resolution. Jan and I had much less time in these two communities with even less free time in Fort Simpson then in Fort Resolution. With Fort Simpson we would travel down on a Monday morning and we would return Tuesday afternoon. We had meetings scheduled and although we had one free evening I didn’t capture much while there. It is a beautiful community, lush and green and right where the Mackenzie and Laird Rivers meet. It is very different from the NWT that I am use to. Hopefully on my next visit I will capture some images to share. On Wednesday, we were off to Fort Resolution. We would fly into Hay River and then drive to Fort Res from there. We would stay in Hay River overnight and return to Fort Res again in the morning. We wouldn’t return to Yellowknife until Thursday evening. That gave us much more time once our meetings were complete. Fort Resolution is the oldest documented community in the NWT and while there we took a drive out to an area called Mission Island. Mission Island had some great scenes and we even watched some eagles fly by (although we have no photos to prove they were there). While driving back to Hay River for the night (and to return home the second evening) we saw a total of six black bears, two beavers and even a rabbit. I was really impressed with Fort Resolution and can’t wait to return. Here is a sample of what I saw. Enjoy, thanks for flowing along and as always Happy Shooting!
