I set off to drive the Dempster Highway to Inuvik, NWT. Didn't make the last 100 miles of so as will be explained -- but it was a great trip anyway. Most of my photos and descriptions are on my web site, here , and a few teaser photos follow.

[image]
Impromptu campsite, eastern Wyoming - 2nd night on the road.

[image]
Part of the Teton range -- sure looks like a scene from Lord of the Rings to me.

[image]
Mt Teton -- happy to say I've never seen any that look like this.

[image]
Here we go --

[image]
Tombstone Mountains -- sure can't complain about this road.

[image]
The Klondike River

[image]

[image]

[image]
The Ogilvie Ridge

[image]
At the Arctic Circle -- brrr, 15 degrees

[image]
Just kidding. 15C, that's 59F.

[image]
Not the place to be if you're looking for company.

[image]
The Peel River -- end of the line for me due to incompetent ferry non-operation.

[image]
Now what could that be?

[image]
Oh, a Grizzly, now about 40 yards away. He just kept going.

[image]

[image]
Close encounter of the cloud kind.

[image]
On the South Klondike Road to Skagway.

[image]
On the Cassiar Highway

[image]
Finding a campsite in BC.

[image]
The Oregon 'badlands' - not so bad.

[image]
Saddle Bag Lake, Tioga Pass, 10100 ft. Thought I might find jefe4x4 here, but I was a couple of days early.

[image]
Finally, the Sierras, while heading for Death Valley. Mt Whitney is second from the left, farthest away.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. It was a lot of driving in a short time, but worth it to me.

Wonderful, thanks. We will enjoy looking at your whole trip.

The only places in Canada we have not been is the Yukon, the North West Territories and Nunavik. Those three places are likely going to be our 25th wedding anniversary trip in 2015

Thanks again for sharing.

Beautiful photos and trip report. I have always wanted to drive the Dempster Highway. I came back from Alaska via the Stewart/Cassiar Highway. I want to go back. Thanks for posting!

So - just why was the Peel ferry not operating? To us you missed the best 1/2 of the Dempster!

You got it all: glorious fall color, off-road adventure, mountains, and solitude. Thanks for the trip report!
