6/18    Started towards Fort Simpson, retracing Rt 3 – no buffalo this time. Drove through the town of Fort Providence, a simple one general store town on the banks of the Mackenzie River. Surprisingly, the town also had a fairly large medical clinic; how a town of 450 people, in the middle of nowhere, can support the clinic is a mystery. Camped at Fort Providence Territorial Park and caught a nice sized northern pike for dinner. Saw several bald eagles soaring over the river.
