Day 33 – North Arm Territory Park to Yellowknife

Today’s Mileage 71
Miles to Date 3123
Miles Remaining 6309

We have now most likely reached the most northerly point of our travels North 62 degrees 28.198 minutes unless we exceed that longitude in Alaska.

It was a short drive to Yellowknife from the North Arm Territory Park. We arrived during the busiest weekend of the year. The campground is full so we are in a parking overflow lot of the campground. I am not sure where all the campers came from as the only road from the rest of world was void of traffic as we drove it this morning. Territorial campgrounds are expensive, $22.50 a night for a this gravel parking lot with no hookups and $28.00 a night for a pull through with just 30 amps electric.

There is internet available in the airport parking lot, so with some luck I might be able to catch up on the blog posts this evening. We plan to spend at least four nights in Yellowknife so I will post more on Yellowknife in the coming days.

Contrary to what we were told, we have cell phone service here.

The rain has found us again but we are told that the weekend will be good for the longest day and aborigine celebrations.
