On my return to High Level, Alberta I fuelled my truck at the Cherdon Enterprises truck stop at the highway corner where you can gain access to Fort Providence, Northwest Territories. I took some time to drive in to the settlement and get a sense for its size and how it was laid out. Many of my students are Dene and have Providence as their last name. It is set on the northern bank of the Mackenzie River and looks onto Providence Island and then Meridian Island behind it. The Mackenzie River is quite wide, almost twice the width of the Peace River as we find it near Fort Vermilion, Alberta. The Deh Cho Bridge that crosses the Mackenzie is impressive – I did two or three photo-stitch images of the bridge at sundown and am looking forward to printing one of the images out. Here, you’ll find images of the Deh Cho Bridge, the Our Lady of Providence Catholic Church, a look out to Providence Island and the Mackenzie River.
