Where are we going today?

During the brief arctic summer on Quttinirpaaq, the sun remains high in the sky bathing the land in continuous daylight. There is no darkness to mark the passage of time telling you when to sleep and when to wake. There are no trees to remind you of lands further south. The scale of the land is both immense and intimate at the same time. Intricate patterns of rock, frost-cracked ground, willows and wildflowers at your feet extend out from where you stand into endless vistas in the clear, dry air. Glaciers on a mountainside 15 km away seem to be details in a landscape within reach.

    This place has breathtaking views of snow and ice. I thought I saw a polar bear, but, it was just just a snow bank. The beach is pretty nice and only costs $5 for an all day pass. Just make sure you bring your own drinks and sunblock, because, the gift shop there is usually closed. It's best to go there during the week, The park can get quite busy on the weekends.
