Today was a fun day- I went into Auyuittuq National Park with an outfitter for the day. Last summer I took a boat ride to the entrance, and now get a chance to go via snowmobile and kamotik.
All the fresh air has left me very sleepy tonight, but I wanted to post a few photos before I head to bed! (There might be more later on this week I’ll post.) Joavee, our outfitter, stopped to check the ice. The warmer temperatures in Pang lately + more sunshine + currents on the fjord in this spot has made the ice start to melt. He had take us through the pack ice to get past this spot! Just a quick stop–have to stretch your legs! We also started to feel wind from the Park’s Entrance… At the entrance to the park… it was so windy! But in this photo it looks so peaceful. (The Cabin is the old ‘park ranger’s cabin’ it’s in the process of being moved I think! ) Because of the wind and lack of snow further on, we didn’t go any further into the park…instead we just enjoyed a few hours at the Entrance! I went with my neighbours… There’s something about these mountains that is just so amazing!
I took a hike up this mountain… I’ll have to post some reflections and more photos later this week. Here I am 1/2 way into my climb…so happy, and excited to be in this moment…even though climbing up a mountain is not easy work, and even more fun in a pair of Sorrels!
It was a such a fun time. I’m blessed to be able to live so close to this amazing park…and have the opportunity to visit it!
