We arrived in the afternoon after a very early start. ;-) We found our B+B in Old Town and then headed to the museum (Prince of Whales Northern Heritage Centre). The museum was was nice and we spent quite a bit of time there!

Kwesi and Meghan managed to convince Kevin and Stephanie that going to Yellowknife in April was an awesome idea! It was Meghan's "I'm done my BA" present and it was worth the journey!

It got cold at night (around -15C) to watch the aurora but the sky was spectacular. The whole trip was a lot of fun.

We stayed in Old Town and walked or took taxis where we needed to go. There was lots to do. We stayed up 3 nights out of 4 to watch the aurora. We used up all of our hand warmers and toe warmers...

We didn't take any photos of the aurora. There are millions online. We chose instead just to enjoy them!

The snomobiles went everywhere! We were a lot more apprehensive of the frozen water!

It was top rated online. It was expensive but fun.

You could see the runway from our B+B. It was quite the sight to see planes take off and land on skis!
