We woke up at 5am to get an early start with our day. We went up to the Elephant Rock lookoff at 221 km up the Dempster Highway and worked our way back, with Jeff fishing and me taking photos, exploring, and for the first time, submerging my GoPro camera!
Jeff was fishing for grayling in this river, but this little immature Dolly Varden (I think) fish was so interested in the GoPro! He kept coming back for his action shot 🙂
The Dempster is such a different world in July! First, well the snow is almost all gone. The vegetation is so green and lush. There are also way more vehicles on the road. Well, still nothing by normal standards, but noticeably more tourists and license plates from outside the territory.
We saw countless rabbits on our drive today. Also 5 or 6 foxes, 3 moose, and no bears!
There was a moose in Two Moose Lake! She was dunking her head and eating plants off the bottom. She didn’t seem to mind us watching. I could have stayed all day!
