During the most productive part of the year, this landscape was covered with purple Northern sweet vetch (Hedysarum alpinum) plants. Therefore, the land was alive with various pollinators visiting the flowers - sulphurs, whites, bumblebees, etc. Hard to imagine Arctic full with so much life, for most people.
Near Inspiration Point, where my S. acaulis study site was located. This year, I incorporated this gynodioecious plant species into my study and I was interested in the pollination ecology and the spatial effect of neighbouring mates on focal individuals.
This now become the southernmost part of the park that I have been to. I remember us being hot after the hike and we dipped into the river for a refreshing moment.
Unnamed Tors, although I think my assistant named it Alpha Wolf Tor or something like that.
Where we went swimming.
Hiking back to the camp. As you can see, there were many steep and rocky slopes along the river that we had no choice but to hike straight up and over the forested areas. Not an easy climb at all.
