Fort McPherson was only 10 km down the road from the campground. We drove in for a quick look but the weather wasn't conducive to doing anything more.
The road from Fort McPherson to Inuvik was, without a doubt, the most boring of the entire trip. Due to the warmer climate, caused by the MacKenzie River delta, the vegetation is all taiga
The ferry route here was 'triangular'. We were sitting on the Dempster, this is the Gwich'in community of Tsiigehtchic (formerly called Arctic Red River). The water you see is the Arctic Red River which joins the MacKenzie at this point, so the ferry crosses the Arctic Red River (if any one is waiting) and then heads across the MacKenzie to the rest of the Dempster Highway.
Campground fee: $28.00 (with power) Total distance traveled to date: 4, 064 km.
