Flying into Kugluktuk
Another view from the plane, raining in Kugluktuk
One of the many visitors sailing into the bay
Another sailor
A pod of Narwhals in the bay
The whale hunters out
Their first catch
Cutting the muttuk into rectangles
Cutting more muttuk
Then it was the women's turn to cut the meat with their ulu knives
No time to take off her helmet
Handing out the muttuk to the community
We are in one plane taking off while this one was heading into the bay
View of the tundra and waters
This was a large herd of muskox that we seen from the plane, about 20 in the herd in total
One of the fishermen's cabins at Ekalluk River with dry fish hanging
Arctic char drying
This is the fishermen's cook house and dining room at Ekalluk River
We invited Annie to come with us

I think James wanted to keep these cuties
