I'm pretty sure there are rules in the blogosphere with respect to when blogs should be put out to pasture, and I'm guessing "Above All, Yellowknife" crossed the line some time ago. It's not that the mission statement at the top of the page is no longer relevant, it's just that I'm too busy these days to produce content. So it is with regret that I will now officially sign off.
Thanks very much to all those who have provided feedback over the years. And to those of you looking for resources for your upcoming visit, I leave you with my top links for planning the perfect Yellowknife visit.
Great places to meet locals and get trip planning advice: Woodyard Brewhouse & Eatery, Yellowknife Farmer's Market, The Black Knight Pub, Javaroma, Overlander Sports, Northern Frontier Visitors Centre.
Best advice for things to do while you're here: get out on the lake (we are surrounded by lakes, big and small), go fishing, go sailing, go skiing, go snowmobiling, get up in a float plane, and when you land, go meet lots of locals. You should probably also drive out on the Ingraham Trail - go for a hike, stop at a campground or day use area, sit around a campfire for a bit, then head back in to town and meet lots of locals.
Best add-on trip: fly or boat to a lodge on the east arm of Great Slave Lake, you'll be glad you did. If the east arm doesn't fit your budget, go to Namushka Lodge.
