Polar Bear (stuffed) at Resolute Airport


Hunting is very much a part of Northern culture and the way of life. You will see all sorts of bits of dead animals in public places such as this airport.

We were gathered here while our luggage was being dealt with and taken to the ship ahead of us, meanwhile we milled about inside and outside for a bit feeling properly on vacation now as everything was very different to our version of normal.

There wasn't a chance to visit Resolute properly or look around which was no great loss as it's one of those places you pass through en route to elsewhere rather than visit for its own sake, my guidebook said "Godforsaken Resolute....", "The land is downright lunar...".

 

These are pictures from a cruise to the High Arctic in August 2010, from Resolute Bay Canada to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
