Today is one of those days it's good to be alive. Inuvik is sunny and clear, with the bright sun painting shadows on the snow, and the warm temperatures luring you outside. We're having the equivalent of a heat wave, with temperatures as high as -10C (14F). With six and a half hours of sunlight, this is just the kind of Sunday I like.
The warm weather meant I could walk around and take pictures without fear of my camera freezing up (or my fingers freezing off). My camera always gets cranky and sluggish when I force it to take pictures in -40C weather. I'm waiting for it to go on strike completely before the winter is over.
Below is a picture of the "on-ramp" for the highway - one of several places you can get on and off the highway in Inuvik. They even have stop signs - very official!
