Day Eleven - May 26, 2005 - NW Territories

Day Eleven turned out to be the nicest day yet in terms of weather. We had clear and sunny skies as we left Bridge Campground in northern Alberta. When we reached High Level, the large grocery store, Extra Foods, was not open yet so we had to wait around a bit before continuing down south.

We passed through the same country we had seen on the way north, however, when we reached Grimshaw, southwest of the town of Peace River, we were in virgin territory. We saw lots of deer and Canadian geese with babies along with a fox and two coyotes.

Dunvegan Provincial Park CampgroundWe camped at Dunvegan Provincial Park along the Peace River deep down in a very green valley - definitely mosquito country. The campground was very luscious and green and full of wonderfully sweet smelling dogwood trees.

Dunvegan BridgeDunvegan Provincial Park was located at the old Dunvegan Ferry site (long since replaced by a modern bridge).
