I have tried several times to write some words to go with these photos and failed miserably. So there are few words, just photos. Thanks to Andy P for the intel and the original idea. Thanks to Janice & Andy for the impeccable hosting & logistics. Thanks to Eri and all the crew at Sirius for the boat, landing craft (!), snowmobiles and expertise at getting up frozen fjords. And of course thanks to Amanda, Jason, Mark, Ian & Rian for being a top team!
