When we moved to Yellowknife back in 2004 we drove all the way from Ontario and arrived at night in the dark. We knew that we were driving in on a dirt highway ( the last 70ish km to town) but didn't realize exactly what it looked like till we went out during the day. In the following years they have made a new highway ( which still leaves something to be desired... oh the joys of living in a northern city). We went out a couple of weeks ago and I decided to take some pictures to share with you all!! ENJOY!This is the old highway....scary eh!!! And this isn't even the worst of it. In some spots you had to go 20km/hr cause of the big holes and when you had to pass someone it could get pretty hairy... especially trucks!! Scary!
The "new" highway.. I think if you click on it and make it bigger you might be able to see the dips and holes in it already!! Oh permafrost!!!
