“Rock lake”

Population: 142

This smallest, most remote Tłįchǫ Dene community occupies a gorgeous setting on the Snare River as it weaves through sandy, rolling shield-country on the cusp of the treeline. No settlement is closer to the Barrenlands, nor to the diamond mines that are the NWT’s economic engine. Fishing and hiking here are ideal. Access is by air and, during some winters, ice road.
