Inuvik is a fairly large town considering how far north it is. It has a few thousand inhabitants. As you drive into town, there is this interesting domed church on the right, and also, they have a nice visitor center/museum nearby.
When were were preparing for the trip, we learned that the Dempster incurred severe wash-out damage. We were gambling that all the damage would be repaired by the time we got up there in the summer. Turned out we were cutting it very close. Here was a crew working south of Inuvik on a section of road that only allowed one-lane of cars to pass. As you can see, there isn’t a guard rail.
