Update from Inuvik, NWT
Hi all, I am currently in Inuvik, NWT. I left Ontario on the 15th and then left BC on the 22nd. Nothing much was done while in BC - mostly just relaxing and enjoying family time with my parents. My trip up north started on the 23rd from Edmonton to Inuvik, via Yellowknife and Norman Wells. Here in Inuvik, we were suppose to fly out to Ivvavik National Park on the morning of 26th. However, once we were in the air and near Sheep Creek, we found that it was covered by thick clouds and snow, and so we had to turn back to Inuvik. We tried again on the 27th, but due to pilot unavailability (in the morning) and poor weather again (in the afternoon), we were grounded for one more day.
Today is the 28th and I really really hope that we can take off today and get my field season started.
Here are some photos that I took for the past few days. No time for description for the photos, but they are pretty self explanatory.
