The beauty of Iqaluit

These pictures are just a few of the many silver linings during my surprise trip to Iqaluit in December 2013 to cover the sex abuse trial of Father Eric Dejaeger.  Such spectacular rugged beauty!  Iqaluit sits above the tree line so there’s not a tree or shrub to be seen, but it’s beautiful.

All the homes are built on stilts.

Iqaluit itself reminded me from time to time of a northern version of a cross between Port aux Basques and St. John’s. Newfoundland 🙂  It’s hilly, and rocky, and the houses are every colour of the rainbow.

Frobisher Bay was frozen solid.  I was surprised to see that the shore line and well into the bay was masses heaved ice chunks.  I try to fathom the Inuit living on the land, and travelling from A to B be it over the ice or land, and I just  marvel.

The pictures can be enlarged first by clicking on the thumbnail, and further enlarged by clicking on the text above the picture which reads:  “Full size is 4912 × 3264 pixels”

Thank you Santa.  That was a trip of a lifetime 🙂
