Lancaster Sound, Looking Towards Devon Island


There are islands aplenty in this part of the world, some of them absolutely huge and a whole range of smaller ones. We now know that there are some passages between them and where they all are. For the pioneers who were seeing this for the first time however, the only way to see if they were sailing into a navigational route or simply a dead-end was to sail along it and see where it went. From sea level it can be very difficult to distinguish whether you are looking at one piece of land or two or more islands and if there is a channel between them.
