Warning when driving to Yellowknife watch out for wild life there is all different types like bison,deer,birds,foxes,bears,etc.. these animal can be anywhere and you should take extra caution when driving on NTW highways best is to stay away and just look.
Note: Do not get too close to the bison they can get aggressive and charge you or your car !
I am joking in this tip about the warning or danger component.
This picture though was one of my favorite ones from Yellowknife. My digital camera doesn't have a very good zoom lense and I was amazed at how close this squirell let me get and watch him eat his meal.
This was taken on the golf course where they are running everywhere.
Late night bar brawls seem to be common throughout Yellowknife, either inside the bars or in the streets after closing time. Although we were warned specifically about the “true local bars” frequented by First Nations Indians (see off the beaten path), we did see a couple of fights outside the bar frequented by the “college” crowd (The Gallery Neighborhood Pub). In fact, this one girl tired to pick a fight with BGK after he had several questions about her 'girlfriend.' Now that was a fight I wanted to see!!!
Play Safe so I don't have to Medevac you! If you are going to be travelling out of town, in the bush, or doing anything dangerous in-town, make sure your insurance covers Medical Evacuation Flights. The closest real hospital is a level 1 Trauma center in Edmonton, and it will take a MINIMUM of 4 hours from the time you arrive at the ER in Yellowknife until you have an ER doc, a CT /MRI or specialist consult.
