Yellowknife is located in the Northwest Territories, the frozen winter wonderland above Canada's main urban centres. With temperatures dropping to below -30C at night, it gets quite cold here. In recent years, this town has seen an influx of winter tourists looking for beautiful aurora borealis. But there are some things to do during the day as well. The Old Town deserves 2-3 hours of your time. Just walk downhill along Franklin Avenue, the city's main thoroughfare, past the Days Inn. It takes about 10-15 minutes before you reach the first attractions in the Old Town. The furthest end of the walking tour would be the hill in the distance.













Ragged Ass Road was originally named by prospectors who had gone broke. This part of town orginally had an unorganized mix of shacks and outhouses. It became a popular street sign to steal although souvenir copies can now be bought instead.













This backyard actually fronts Great Slave Lake, which is frozen and snow-covered for the season so it looks like it has merged with land.





With the lake frozen over, it is possible to drive across the lake to Dettah, an indigeneous community. Houseboats on the lake have also frozen over.













To combat bitter cold winter temperatures, cars have electric cords at the front so when they park, they can plug in to keep the equipment warm.











Many of these northern communities are not easily accessible due to distance and harsh weather conditions. Hence, air travel is crucial for both passengers and cargo in this vast wilderness. The Pilot's Monument celebrates bush pilots from yesteryear with a simple structure on top of a hill commanding lovely views of the city.











Yellowknife has a bus service with 3 routes, and I did spot a few buses rumble by every now and then during my walk.
