As promised in the last post, here are some pictures from the summer in Baker Lake. It isn't much, but it is what we have. The store renovation blog will be up tomorrow.
This is out at the Bridge to Nowhere overlooking the river. It's quite peaceful out there. And isn't the view something else?
This is the Bridge in the background. There is a little eating/rest area there, which is where this was taken from.
That is a sik sik (I believe that is the proper spelling). It is essentially a ground squirrel that if you get too close, has some serious anger issues. As you can see, he isn't too happy at the moment.
An arctic hare. Poor guy didn't know that winter was over. Usually they turn brown in the summer.
A ptarmigan. This has to be the stupidest bird known to man (or a close runner up to the dodo). They are hunted with rocks and sticks. You chase them, and instead of flying away (which they can do) they decide to run. Like I said, not too bright. Makes me wonder how Steve couldn't catch one... (Sorry Steve, had to do it!)
Lovely Baker Lake as viewed from the VOR near the airport.
