Thanks to recently reconnecting with a couple friends from my Greenland adventure, I’m once again motivated to hunt through my archives for cool arctic images. (Pun intended.)
That’s me in the summer of 1986 at J-Site – about 13 miles north of Thule. You can’t tell from the image, but the cliff I’m standing on drops off straight down for a good 500 feet. On the right is a friend cooling off after a long hike – proof that the human body can easily adjust to extremely cold climates. It was no more than 45 degrees in either of these shots.
I sure am glad that I have these pictures. I’m not likely to have an opportunity to see sites quite like these again!
