A Little Adventure | in the NWT
“The very basic core of a (wo)man’s living spirit is (her) passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” – Christopher McCandless
What an amazing few weeks. We have been looking forward to this trip for almost a year now, it is crazy that it has now come and gone…. but what an unbelievable trip it was. I have heard Meg & Bailey (of Ram Head Outfitters) talk of their area for years now & although I have seen photos, they never really did the area justice. The open country, steep hills, and changing weather made for an eventful hunt. The day Jim got his Caribou we experienced sun, rain, snow & hail! Ellie came along with us for the hike & she was great company. It is unreal what a nose & sense of direction she has.
We then were picked up and headed to Ram Head’s base camp. We spend our days learning from the Simpson family & touring around a bit. We cannot thank them enough for putting us up & teaching us SO much!
Here are a few flicks from the adventure.
This was one of 3 wolf puppies along the Canol Road. So bloody cute! I can see why people want to live with the wolves! (haha, actually not really…. ) While we were staying at the base camp, wolf howls and yelps put us to sleep a few nights. They were hauntingly beautiful!
Just a couple pretty spots along the way on the Canol Road 🙂
We were lucky enough to get SO close to this Caribou herd on the top of a mountain. Such amazing animals, we sat quietly, as they circled around us. Ellie was vibrating with excitement and after looking through the photos I am too!
The dusting of snow made for some crisp mornings & cool photos!
We headed back down the Canol Road with excitement for what we had experienced and the road ahead in the Yukon. Stay tuned for more photos of our adventures there!
