Photos of Ivvavik from the air

Here are some of the landscape photos that I took in Ivvavik National Park.  There are many more after this batch.

May 29, 2012 - second (and successful) attempt to fly into Ivvavik.  The first and follow-up tries didn't go so well.

Amazing scenery! I love those brown and white patterns. And the smooth, green "lawns" around the Firth River.

A trip of a lifetime! I envy you.
