We’ve just had a quick visit to Fort Good Hope and we our last two days have been filled with excitement. Yesterday we had to navigate the Dan Sault Rapids. We visited a memorial to a young man who drowned in the rapids. This was sobering but strengthened our resolve to paddle well.
Today we saw two musk oxen on our way to the Ramparts Rapids. What a thrill to see them. Our run through the Ramparts Rapud went well- a wee bit more exciting than yesterday but a good conservative run. Our reward was an amazing trip through the Ramparts and visual relief from the 2300 km green tunnel of black spruce we have been enjoying for the past 68 days.
Now we are on a big and wild phase on our way to Tsiigehtchic. It is 350 km away and lots of North running sections. We are hoping for calm water and wind but likely we will be sitting out some in a few days based on weather reports.
