Across the 60th parallel, Tori, Buck and I are now in the Northwest Territories and headed to Yellowknife, in our campervan from North Campervans. Yellowknife is our jumping off point for a canoe trip down the Mountain River. This road trip has some real delights to take in. First off, we follow part of the Northwest Territories Waterfalls Route where the highway takes us past several breathtaking waterfalls! Each one is part of a Territorial Park and is set up for camping. We cross the mighty Mackenzie River, Canada’s longest river, and the second largest river in North America continue seeing some unreal wildlife, particularly when we head down the Frontier Highway through the Mackenzie River Bison Sanctuary. Before too long, we’re in Yellowknife, and we take in an amazing view of Great Slave Lake from Pilot’s Monument. The following day, we’d meet up with my brother Ted, and his wife Heather, and we’d board a plane to head north to Norman Wells, NTW where a bush plane would drop us off near the Mackenzie Yukon Divide for a two-week canoe trip down the Mountain River.
