Northwest Territories Route Information

CCR offers Northwest Territories Route information in this thread and also in our
Northwest Territories Routes section
http://www.myccr.com/canoedb/nt.htm
As well, members post trip reports in our
Northwest Territories Trip Reports folder
http://www.myccr.com/SectionForums/viewforum.php?f=124
I go through this folder several times each year and post corresponding entries in the Forum threads. That is, most entries in the folder are already referenced in the Forum threads.

For general information on the Northwest Territories and paddling there, go to
Northwest Territories Resources
http://www.myccr.com/SectionForums/view ... 23&t=30503

.

Regions for filing Northwest Territories Routes

The four regions are based on drainage basins, primarily to minimise cross-listing.
Unfortunate consequences:
1. The Dease and the Kendall Rivers (almost always paddled together) are placed in different regions.
2. The Marian and the Camsell Rivers (often paddled together) are placed in different regions.
Corresponding reports will have to be cross-listed.

Arctic region
Coverage.
Mainland waters flowing into the Arctic Ocean (except the Mackenzie River and its tributaries), plus waters on the Arctic islands, plus coastal Routes.
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=123&t=42069

Great Slave region
Coverage.
Great Slave Lake and its basin.
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=123&t=38104

Hudson region
Coverage.
Routes on waters flowing into Hudson Bay and travel on the Bay itself.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 23&t=40971

Mackenzie region
Coverage.
Mackenzie River and its tributaries below Great Slave Lake (where the Mackenzie proper starts).
The limit of 60,000 characters required two posts.
Post 1. Routes up to but NOT including the Mountain River.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 23&t=40994
Post 2. Routes starting with the Mountain River.

Thanks to idylwyld and anonymous for assistance in deciding the regions.

Lengthy trips spanning more than one basin.
