Back to the beginning of the day... the last thing I did before boarding the plane in Edmonton was to visit Tim Hortons for a coffee -- oh how I will miss you, Timmies... (for the non-Canadians among you, Tim Hortons is a Canadian institution. Kind of like Starbucks, but less pretentious).
On the way into town from the airport (about a 10-minute drive), you see the sign welcoming you to Inuvik -- the end of the Dempster highway. This picture was taken around 1:30 pm. I was surprised there was this much light during the day. It didn't get really dark until after 5 pm.
This is a picture from my hotel room at around 5 pm. The sky has a really neat blue haze when there is light available.
