Those of us complaining about the awful weather and cold winter days really have little to worry about compared to some. A lovely friend of mine, Kristy (of My Heart Stumbles) is currently documenting her daily adventures living in the very northernmost tip of Canada - Alert, Nunavut; which incidentally is also the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world.
In spite of weeks of total darkness and unthinkably cold temperatures, she has been posting the most beautiful photos (think great experiments with low-light photography) and sharing the ups and downs of living in such an isolated area with the utmost positivity and charm.
You really should pop over to her blog, North of 60 (although actually she’s even north of the 80th parallel) and take a peek at a part of the world that very few people ever get to see.
From adventures ice-fishing on New Year's eve to encounters with curious arctic wolves, to glimpses of the long unseen sun, each post on North of 60 shares a new adventure experienced by this truly kind and talented lady.
Go ahead : pay her blog a visit and leave her an encouraging note or two. Wouldn’t you want a friendly hello if you were living in darkness and isolation? Yeah, I thought so.
