Yukon’s Tombstone Provincial Park

The far north of Canada was in the news today, with the opening of a road (unpaved, there are limits to even the Canadian government’s largesse) between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. The closest I’ve gotten to these outposts is Tombstone Provincial Park, which is near the start of the (also unpaved) Dempster highway that leads across the arctic circle up to Inuvik. It’s truly spectacular country!
