Ingraham Trail, Northwest Territories, Canada 16

Description : In the 1950s, when mineral discoveries in the Northwest Territories sparked a - roads to resources - construction boom, the Canadian federal government began to build a highway from Yellowknife to Fort Reliance, at the extreme eastern end of Great Slave Lake. The road was designed to be part of a loop that would eventually circle the entire lake, but the project was abandoned when mining potential did not meet expectations. The Ingraham Trail named for colourful Yellowknife entrepreneur, Vic Ingraham now ends at Tibbit Lake, just 69 kilometres from Yellowknife.
