Reader submitted question:
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)?
Let me know if you need more information about Cape Dorset and surrounding areas.
I don't mind answering any questions about the area. Let me know the name of the novel when it gets published so I can purchase it and show it to people and say "Hey I helped out with this novel!". LOL. No one would believe me anyway.
Inukshuk Point is located on Malliq Island (or Malliqjuaq Island). Although it isn't very far from the airport you would need to get there by snowmobile in the winter. You could walk there or use an ATV in the summer if you use the land bridge between Dorset Island and Malliqjuaq Island but would have to take into account the tides because the land bridge is only accessible during low tide and has an twelve hour tidal cycle. The body of water between Dorset and Malliq Island is called Tellik Inlet. Total distance is approximately 5 km. But I am guessing a bit. It has been called Inuksuk Point on the blog but it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.
Have a look at the post Snowmobiling Day for a view of the area and some features on the way. Funny I don't have any more photos on the blog from the area. I may have more on my computer but it would take some time to find.
