One night while I was at Alert I went out for a walk around the station. These were some of my favorite shots.. What I really loved about this place was how quiet it was, there was no one around..everyone was inside because it was -35 C but it was just utterly quiet, I could not get enough of that. In the bottom picture I actually startled an Environment Canada tech who was coming back from releasing a weather balloon. That was him coming by on his snowmobile and he was not expecting me to be hanging out along the road.
So one thing I did not realize on my road to CFS Alert in Nunavut is that there is usually a stop over in Thule, Greenland for the night. I have to admit I was just excessively excited just to be able to say I have been to Greenland. Now after I have been there I am extremely determined that I will go back to explore once again..
This past Sunday I took a walk out to the Leslie street spit, a place I had heard about but never actually went. Now after I have been it seems ridiculous that I never went especially since there were so many types of birds! I didn’t manage to catch any great photos of the birds but the other awesome part of this place was the beach.. It is crazy how something that for all intensive purposes is a pile waste rock could look so very cool in the end.
