One of the many surprises I've encountered since moving to Inuvik is how pretty the town can be. Even when the sun isn't shining brightly (which it usually is), there is beauty to be found.
Below are some pictures of a couple of sculptures in Chief Jim Koe Park in front of the elementary school. Although I look forward to the warm weather of summer, I am not yet sick of the snow.
"This sculpture symbolic of the cooperation of three races in the community and in the North, was erected by the Government of the Northwest Territories in honour of the official opening of Inuvik. The opening ceremony was performed by the Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker, P.C., M.P., who was the first Prime Minister to visit any part of Canada north of the Arctic Circle. July 21, 1961."
