First community we see after 3 days on Dempster highway, Fort MacPherson, we met two other cyclist that were going north on Dempster highway to arctic ocean.
We chatted a little with locals, unfortunately the only photo I have is from inside the store to show how expensive is here!
After a little rest, we get back on the road to the next river crossing with ferry.
Due to permafrost and being close to river, there is no fixed ferry platform or sign here.
The road just goes straight to river and ferry landing has to be always repaired after heavy rain or high river water. Also in winter when the river is frozen the road will just continue over the frozen water as ice road.
We met another solo rider from Ontario that was traveling Dempster.
Finally we get to Inuvik and a huge sign for the end of Dempster highway and of course photo for another milestone!
We made it this far, we can say we did Dempster all the way, even though there is another 150km, the new road from here to Tuktoyaktuk, Arctic Ocean.
To our surprise, in the communities and towns here there are very good cellphone reception.
In the campsites there are few motorcyclists, couple of bicyclist and few RVs. But once in a while we see some that travel with all terrain campers, This one was more interesting for their license plate, “DoveNest”
