Description: Yes, people actually go swimming in the Arctic. On our hike into the eastern hills above Kanger Air Base our team found this crystal clear lake formed by groundwater in a gorgeous fen.

Description: Any former Scouts out there? Those of you who earned your ranks/progress awards when tracking and trailing were part of the requirements may recognize this trail marker--a standard structure for identifying trails or significant features along the trail. This pyramidal trail marker sign is still used in Greenland as there is a complete absence of wood unless it is brought in by ship or plane. Therefore, trails must be marked used available resources--rocks, in this case.

Description: Our first view of sea ice. Sea ice flows much farther south along the Canadian coast than along the western coast of Greenland due to the presence of a warming current along Greenland's western coast.
