The Dempster Highway, also referred to as Yukon Highway 5 and Northwest Territories Highway 8, is a highway in Canada that connects the Klondike Highway in Yukon to Inuvik, Northwest Territories on the Mackenzie River delta. This remote, about 800 km long gravel road offers spectacular views onto some of the most beautiful landscapes in Yukon’s Arctic. While living in the Territory for 22 years I have travelled this highway during all seasons. Not far north of the Arctic Circle I took this image of the Richardson Mountains during the “blue hour” on a cloudy day just before sunrise. You can feel the cold in this image and at the same time get a sense of the vast open space still prevalent in the northern Yukon.
