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..
We arrived near Quebec city and low and behold we were stuck there for a few days, fortunately having foreseen this we went right to Mt St Anne and stayed at a hotel right on the hill. Tonight I decided to go take a look around and I found this lone snow gun, it made me very much miss my time as a Snowmaker in New Zealand, and standing there taking this picture in -16 weather made me realize how much I envied Snowmakers in Quebec!
