Deep Winter, Deeper Wilderness
Many of the joys of exploring Nunavut in the winter have to do with staying warm. Sipping hot tea, hiding inside a down sleeping bag, feeling the sun as you ski into a new valley, finally getting going in the morning once the packing is done… Here in the middle of Auyuittuq Park, we rediscovered something we already knew – if one is well prepared, any place can be enjoyed at any time of year. Summit Lake, Auyuittuq National Park, Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada.
