Engineer Creek

We spent a night camped along Engineer Creek north of Tombstone on the Dempster highway. I think this will be the farthest north we get on this trip, we were 240 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. It's difficult adjusting to the long days, the sun sets well after we're in bed, but it never really gets dark. I took this photo at about 10:30 at night and the sun was still well above the horizon. The orange color of the rocks is due to minerals in the water.

The next morning we drove back over Windy Pass and the highway was lined with yellow daisies. The mountains here look like piles of gravel, which was rather ethereal in the mist.
