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. Several members of the team simply could not resist the opportunity to go "swimming in the Arctic". Their expressions were typical of those experiencing northern lakes for the first time.

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.
