The Dempster Highway—Canada’s only all-weather road to cross the Arctic Circle—was officially opened on 18 August 1979. It was unveiled as a two-lane, gravel-surfaced, all-weather highway that ran 671 km from the Klondike Highway near Dawson City to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories. Ferries handle the traffic at the Peel River crossing near Fort McPherson and the Arctic Red River crossing near Tsiigehtchic. During the winter months, the highway extends another 194 km to Tuktoyaktuk, on the northern coast of Canada, using frozen portions of the Mackenzie River delta as an ice road. this panorama was taken near the Arctic Circle with the Richardson Mountains on the far side of the Peel Plateau. the highway can be seen in the lower left corner. 109 views

Played with photography since early High School. Since moving to the Yukon in 1997 I have become much more involved and am now comfortable in Photoshop although there is always more to learn. The Yukon is a great canvas and would recommend it for most everyone’s Bucket List

    Wow, this is awesome! I must say that your notes really impressed me.. I have a driving urge now to get on that road! Great panorama… I like how there’s only a hint of the road in the composition, preserving the vastness of the scenery. very good light, too. Well done!
