Driving the Dempster!

leave a comment »

Between trips up the Winter Ice Road, I had to make a trip to Paulatuk for work. ┬áMy flight connection required me to overnight in Inuvik and the next day the weather decided I should stay in Inuvik for a while, two days actually. On day two of our layover, my business partner and I decided to rent a truck and drive the Dempster Highway to the Yukon. I had never driven the Dempster before and just one day earlier it was closed due to weather conditions, this could get interesting. By lunch time we had our rental and some munchies and we were off. Our plan was to make it to the Yukon border and cross it before heading back. We knew we would stop in Fort McPherson for dinner on our return (my business partner has family there). We would make several stops to just take in our surroundings and I was snapping photos everywhere. It was a great day and I know now that I have to drive the entire Dempster Highway in summer or early fall, it was amazing. Here are some images I created during that day of driving. Thanks for stopping in, enjoy the images and for those of you looking for part two of the Caribou, don’t worry it is coming as is part two of Driving the Dempster. Thanks again and as always Happy Shooting.
