McNallie Creek, Northwest Territories, Canada 24

Description : A view of what happens when overburden gives way forming a sinkhole - and be delighted by the swallows nesting on the cliff face.
The McNallie Creek picnic area and trail are a welcome rest stop for weary travellers along the Mackenzie Highway north of Enterprise.
The creek was named after Mr. A. McNallie, a foreman building the highway between Enterprise and the Mackenzie River in the late 1950,s. He had been paddling the creek, when the sound of rushing water alerted him to the presence of a waterfall directly ahead. Throwing himself clear, his canoe was swept over the 17 meter waterfall. On a clear day, you can still see the canoe,s skeleton!
