June 5 - Ogilvie to Engineer Creek

The resurrection of Dawit
We stayed an extra day at Ogilvie which gave us all the chance to heal up.  The Dempster was much more difficult than we had expected and it was a good idea at this point to make sure everyone was doing OK.  Today's ride was shorter at just over 66km so it would be a good test to see how Dawit was feeling.

Heading out from our campsite we had a nice long downhill which got everyone fired up.  The rest of the ride was smoother roads and a tailwind.  We had our fastest average speed so far at 24.5km/h.  Spirits were definitely high at this point and we were all feeling a little better about some day making it to Newfoundland.

We stopped and checked out Elephant Rock

The mosquitos had finally found us at the Engineer Creek campsite
