3-Image Panorama in LR.
Shot from 7-Mile Hill.

Climbing out of the Ogilvie River valley, you leave the North Ogilvie Mountains ecoregion and enter the Eagle Plains ecoregion. Widely scattered groups of black spruce and tamarack trees are interspersed with dwarf birch and willow shrubs among the cottongrass, lichen and mosses. High above the Ogilvie and Peel rivers, the road follows ridgetops through the plains, crossing from the Peel (Mackenzie) watershed and following the Porcupine (Yukon) watershed once again.
Watch for signs of burned areas as you travel across Eagle Plain. Even this close to the Arctic Circle, fires, both in the forest and the tundra, are major factors in shaping the ecosystem.

Following well-drained slopes, the highway winds up the 300-metre-high escarpment of the Eagle Plain plateau. In some exposed cuts, you can see the resistant, nearly horizontal sandstone that forms the base of most of the plateau. Here, for the second time, the highway crosses the continental divide. For the next 60 kilometres water on the right hand side of the road flows to the Beaufort Sea, while water on the left side of the road flows to the Bering Sea.
