"Although the Northwest Territories are more
likely to be lumped with "the North" than
"the West" technically, Tulit'a - a small Dene
First Nations community of some 500

So began the March column, which reflects on the numerous (and often surprising) relationships between Quebec and the Northwest Territories.
The impetus for this column was a long (really long - 3761.04 km to be precise) road trip from southern Wyoming to Tulit'a, NWT. The journey was revelatory, the Far North fascinating both culturally and ecologically, and the drive was, well, really really long.

Follow the link for bluegrass band Nickle Creek's "Fox went out on a chilly night"
which we played repeatedly while looking at all the foxy photos we captured.
See this month's column or the handful of blog posts I did during the trip (published on www.drawntothewest.com) for a lot more details!
