Dempster Highway, Northwest Territories, Canada 01

Dempster Highway, Northwest Territories, Canada 01

Description : In all of North America, across the vast wilderness which makes up northern Canada and Alaska, only one year-round public highway crosses the Arctic Circle. Today, the trail has become a well-maintained gravel roadway, leading to an unparalleled scenic wilderness. Surprisingly, at the northern end of the highway there is civilization - in Inuvik, the modern Arctic service centrer founded in the mid-1950s. Inuvik offers a startling contrast to the virgin wilderness of the Dempster Highway.
