For three weeks we traveled by dog sled over the frozen sea ice of northwestern Greenland. As we neared the end of our journey, near the Inuit village of Qaanaaq, a flurry of snow covered the landscape and delighted Naimanngitsoq Kristiansen, one of our Inuit guides.
Ice is melting rapidly in the Arctic and the sea ice is becoming unstable. To see images of how our dog team fell through the ice and into the freezing water, please #follow me at @CristinaMittermeier
