It must have been so different before the roads were put in when, in the winter, people would travel the rivers by dog team. Then by snow machine. Then came the winter roads, which some communities, like Trout Lake and Nahanni Butte, still use. While they may not be used for highways anymore, the rivers are still used. Now they're used for making bridges in the wintertime.
Question: What would the north be without ice bridges...?
A view of the Nahanni Butte from the Nahanni Butte Winter Road. Yup, I hiked over that.
