National Geographic : 1975 May
Where the Nahanni River claws its way through gorges 2,000 feet deep, we found hotsprings north of 60, and learned strange tales of gold and headless men. From Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories, our riverboat churned north along the Mackenzie towards the Arctic Ocean. We observed many strange species of birds and animals. We camped over night before starting up the Nahanni to Deadman's Valley... to the ancient mystery of the lost gold mines and the beheaded bodies of lonely prospectors. We carried on upriver, past sub-Arctic hotsprings, to the 300-foot majesty of Virginia Falls. Our eight-day exploration of the Canadian wilderness is something I'll never forget.
