And some photos if it helps anyone... In the thick of Tombstone: Top of Ogilvie: Just north of the Arctic Circle sign: Probably my favorite photo I took of the Dempster - just amazing colors, just after crossing into the Northwest Territories: Between Inuvik and Tuk: And the kinds of views that await you in Tuk. I sat here to eat lunch. Then the way back down - coming up to the Mackenzie River Ferry (this was a miserable pot-holed disaster 2 days earlier - kudos to those road crews): Heading towards the Yukon border - road was snow covered over that pass, but no photo, unfortunately: Then heading back into Tombstone: It's a looooong road, and weather (and graders) impact the scenery and condition quite drastically. It was almost a different road on the way up than it was on the way down (that was true for a lot of the roads I did twice on my trip). The southern end through Tombstone was easily in the best shape - dry and fast, and looked like it would still be good even if damp, so I'd recommend going up at least into Tombstone for anyone in that area, even if there's no intent to go further north.
