“I pulled over on the side of a small little island and found a wolf den right on the shoreline. They’d dug down into some rocks where the water level had dropped… Just a splendid day here.” – Will Steger, April 19, 2018. Firedrake Lake, NWT.

    Just wondering if there are fly-in resorts on any of these lakes? Any sign of development?

      Where Will is now, there are no resorts of any kind. Only a few trapper’s cabins – but I think he’s beyond that point now as well. There are only a few trees standing between him and the Barren Lands now.
