A Very Icy Road (9 pics)

Posted in Pictures   19 Jan 2011   / 7751 views

UPD: This icy road is known as the Tuktoyaktuk Winter Road because it is only open to traffic in the wintertime. The reason for this is that in the summertime it is a river. It is only in the wintertime that the Mackenzie River Delta freezes which makes a road from parts of the Arctic Ocean and the river. This road connects the communities of Tuktoyaktuk and the Northwest Territories in Canada. In the summertime the village of Tuktoyaktuk can be reached only by boat or plane.
