The Deh Cho (Mackenzie) River in NWT is the second longest river in North America after the Mississippi. Its tributaries drain a fifth of Canada and it spans 1700 km to its delta at the Arctic Ocean. The delta itself is so spread out that it appears to be a part of the ocean, even as much as ten km upriver.
Greetings from the Deh Cho River.

Looks like a gorgeous day Lynette. Thanks for sharing. Allan
It was. About 22C and no bugs!
A sunny fall day with no bugs is the best. 👍
I love those sparkles of sunlight on the water:)
Yes, very pretty. It was a nice day. 🙂
I can’t believe I’ve never heard of the 2nd longest river in North America. Yikes!
You may have heard of the Mackenzie, Jacqui. No one I know has heard of the renamed river. That’s politics.
As Anneli points out, you may have heard of it as the Mackenzie, but it lives in the very far north (it empties into the Arctic Ocean) and lots of people haven’t heard of it.
I love looking at the water – it’s such a feeling of peace.
I agree. I find that the ocean can increase that sense, too.
Yes, heading there in a couple weeks!
Sounds and looks like an impressive river. It’s amazing to think just how huge the territories are … and Canada in general.
It’s really big, although it comes third after Quebec and Ontario. Yes, we live in a massive country!
