Where the Rivers Run Wild

From the INTO THE ARCTIC Project

Running through the oldest mountains in North America, the Firth is one of the wildest rivers on the continent. Its flow spills into the Beaufort Sea at the north end of the Yukon and is crossed by the porcupine caribou herd – numbering over 100,000 – during their annual migration. Hiking along its shores with this large canvas strapped to my pack, I was struck by the changing light, sporadically illuminating the tundra – nature’s reward for an afternoon spent at the Firth.
