Great shot of this interesting place. We were there a few years ago, but the shot I took then is not nearly as good as yours.

Amazing! I never would have put the words
'desert' and 'Canada' together, especially
when I looked at the Wunder Map and saw how
far North it is! Great shot and series and
thanks..I like a day when I learn something
new! Congratulations on your new Blue, Katy!

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
