Canyons. It was not the kind of landscape that came to mind when I first began thinking about the Canadian Arctic. I had to see for myself.
A flight to Paulatuk, a day and a half across the tundra, and 40 kilometres later, we were camping on a plateau with arresting views at every edge. On this one, I perched my easel as the cries of gyrfalcons and peregrine falcons filled the sky.
