The Hudson Strait

A photo taken two or three weeks ago while snowmobiling on the Hudson Strait on the south eastern corner of Baffin Island. All this ice is broken up or impassable now.

The Hudson Strait connects Hudson Bay to the Atlantic Ocean.  Click on the link to learn more about the Srait.

Yep that's melt water laying on top of the ice.

Goodness, so much ice and snow this late in the year? Eek.

Fantastic shot though!

So this is going to come out of the blue, but I'm helping out with a novel that's being written, and part of it is based in your area - would you mind if I asked a couple of questions? For example - how far it is from the Cape Dorset airport to Inukshuk Point (and would you have to travel by skidoo)?
