Tomorrow I am suppose to start my trek up to Yellowknife. In short I’m planning to do it in two days, so I can go slow and enjoy the drive. You know stop at all the “touristy” places along the way.
This planned trip of mine has now turned into a touch and go trip. I’m not sure what I am going to be able to do. Right now the highway between Fort Providence and Behchoko is closed do to thick smoke in the area from Forest Fires (about an hour out of Yellowknife). There also happens to be a lot of Buffalo along this stretch making it even worse.
I wasn’t planning to do that leg of the trip until Thursday, but I’m starting to think it might be a better idea to just make a run for it if the highway reopens Tuesday afternoon as planned.
So for now I’m on Highway Watch.
