Day Ten - May 25, 2005 - NW Territories

We left the cold, windy, and pre-spring weather in the Northwest Territories and returned to a much warmer Alberta-and lots of green trees and bushes. We also saw lots of bunnies, two porcupines, and a coyote along the roadside.

Bridge CampgroundOur campsite for Day Ten was a very rustic one along the Peace River, 42 miles east of the town of High Level. Here the afternoon was warm enough to spend sitting outside the camper and enjoy our first campfire in “balmy” 57 degrees. Ah, the wonderful smell of campfire smoke!

Fort VermillionThe campsite was a bit out of our way, but we got the opportunity to see historic Fort Vermillion, a small community along the Peace River within sight of the distant Caribou Mountains. Here we found lots of old, very picturesque buildings.
