New Photos from Nunavik, Canada


I just returned home to Seattle from a quick trip north to the 55th parallel – Nunavik, Canada to be a little more exact! While we found lots of wolf sign in the area, actual sightings were not to be, unfortunately. We opted for muskox, red fox . . . and mosquitoes. This land is mostly flat and covered in large, flat rounded rocks from the glaciers that covered the area. The glaciers also carved out a land of many small lakes, which in turn adds to the insect population in the area.

Fortunately using bug spray and head nets, we had all the proper protection from the insects. It always pays to be prepared and to do your research on a location. In this case our preparation made the situation more than manageable.

Today I am headed back north to Katmai National Park for a couple weeks. Not a bad life! I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. I’d love to hear about the kinds of things my readers are up to, so please feel free to leave a comment below. I’m busy and on the go so while I can’t respond to everyone, I do make an effort to keep my finger on the pulse of what everyone is up to!

  1. Wolves are like that. I love all your shots, but especially the fox pups and musk oxen. Can you tell us the longest lens you felt you needed? How far, roughly, were you from the subjects?

    Glad you are enjoying the adventure. Fox are my favorite and I have only seen in Alaska(with mosquitoes) and in my neighborhood in Texas. Sad how these animals are being squeezed out. Love your photos and stories!

    In Olympia for a couple of weeks and just returned from a day at Mt Rainier. On the way back at dusk in the town of Packwood, elk roam in the area. We managed to get fairly close while they grazed. Quite a treat, not seen in our home state of New Jersey!! Will post them on instagram (morris2555).
