Fog Bow
It really was an amazing scene. I like fog bows - I see them only occasionally in the massive sky. They are very strange.

Being stalked
This bear was right at the yacht! He tried to get onboard! Good job one of the crew was on watch.

Empty, remote raw beauty
This blog is particularly poetic. Silence. Touched by the starkness. Thanks again for taking us along.

Poetry
The poetry just happened! I wasn't planning on writing anything so artistic. It is remarkable what adventure can do.

My own insignificance
I have this feeling in many locations as I look around at the stark beauty and I am mystified by all that surrounds. Those wooly beats look grand. Hopefully, some day. Enchanted by the Artic. Thanks for taking us along. See you soon.

Tea Time

Tea Time
Some of our best memories are tea or coffee time in remote locales...an intimate sharing hard to repeat...the satisfaction of hot liquid down the throat that not only warms the bod but the pleasure of taking a moment whatever may come. Great pic!

Tea Time

Tea Time
That was without a doubt the most comfy chair in the governor’s house. Needs a little cleaning before the next owners move in. It was abandoned in 1948.

These musk ox just kept coming towards us. It was an exhilarating few moments.

The Sea Ice

Follow that Road
What an exhilarating blog Dave. Tingles my soul with scythe like icy cold and blasts of steamy hot emotions that only hit in places most remote. Fabulous pics...really takes me there.

The Sea Ice

Follow that road
The sea ice can be a confusing place. It may look like a nice place to walk - but it’s fickle!

Once again, Thanks for your post and photos!
My wife and I love the high latitudes. Just something that can't be fully explained unless one experiences it. And at that maybe only some folks. All our trips to date have been with Lindblad. Suggestions on best ways to explore the Canadian high arctic? Outfitters? We don't need pampering or luxury but we are getting on in years. My wife is Canadian (Quebec) and wants to see these parts of Canada where she has never been. Regards

Outfitters
I work for 'Quark Expeditions' and as such would highly recommend them. There are many outfitters, however. Depending on your interests, whether it be by sea, air or land. 'Weber Arctic' is also highly recommended!

A Northern Gem
Once again you are exploring the far reaches of Canada. I guess I'd never considered that you'd know Canadian Arctic languages but no I'm not surprised.

A Northern gem
Qujinami (Thanks) for following along. I told one of the local guides at the lodge today in broken Inuktitut 'Piisuqaijaqtunga qaqqa ummingmaktallimat' and he understood. 'I am walk mountain because four musk ox'. My grammar isn't great but I'm working on it.

You're bringing us into to a never known world. Beautifull pictures. Thanks for that.

Fremde Welt
It is a lovely world. Not great for RVs here though. Climate, terrain and distance have thwarted any notion of road construction in these parts.

Murals in Iqaluit

'Cos
I love to travel with you vicariously through your blogs Dave 'cos I love remote. But cold, cold, cold may be better for you than me. But for the people of the tundra, life is what they make of it...where folks are tough...in communities that exist only 'cos other people are there.

Murals in Iqaluit

'Cos
The people of the north do make the communities! Many folks view the north as an empty, pristine wilderness - I see it as a place where folks live, hunt and work. I love the cold, i love the wild. This is home.

Salisbury Plain

That is unbelievable
2,000 ? 5,000? unknown.

Salisbury Plain

60,000
About 60,000 king penguins in the Salisbury Plain population... A place that defies reality!
