A few kilometers past the previous pictures, I was stopped for about 20 minutes because a construction crew was repaving the road. These horses were grazing right next to where I was stopped. Unlike other places, where highways are repaved one lane at a time and traffic passes around the work, in the North, sections of highway 10 km or more in length are entirely dug up, and traffic is led through by a pace truck in one direction at a time, passing around and between the heavy equipment. This is really the only kind of traffic jam you find up here, and the flag people controlling the traffic were always friendly and would tell you how long you could expect to be waiting. During this wait I was able to make and eat lunch on the tail gate.
