Heading up to Macmillian Pass, NWT in a few weeks. I'll be leaving Edmonton on the 24th, booting it to Watson Lake, YT, and then heading up to Ross River, cross the Pelly by cable ferry, and then it's about 200 km on North Canol Road to the NWT border, where the road effectively becomes a trail, with several significant river crossings before I get to my destination, a lodge operated by the Kaska Dena called Dechlinla, about 20 miles or so into the NWT. The trail is pretty much impassible (for my Land Cruiser, anyway) after Dechlinla, but that's just fine by me...it's really one of the most beautiful places on the planet...
Interesting history to this route - it was built in 1944 for the construction of a 4" oil pipeline from Norman Wells, NWT to Whitehorse, YT in WW II - in advance of what war planners feared would be a Japanese invasion of Alaska. Oil only flowed for a year - after what must have been an absolutely incredible effort to lay that much pipe in what was--and still is--some of the most rugged country on earth.
Here's a link to a map of the area, and a few photos, at least as far as the NWT border:
A few of my own photos from my trip there last year:
