1. Long Weekend

    We took advantage of the long weekend by skiing out to James Bay and setting up camp for 2 nights. The weather was great! Although the nighttime temperatures dipped to -20C, we had warm sunny days to explore our campsite and the surrounding islands. This was probably the last weekend for this kind of trip. The snow is starting to melt on many of the islands and the Arctic Ocean will break up soon, making a crossing by ski too dangerous.

    Melting snow reveals the rocks and moss that cover the islands of James Bay. While hiking across the frozen Arctic Ocean, we found an abandoned fishing net sitting on the ice.

  6. Mitten-Making in Wemindji

    This March, I had an awesome opportunity to make traditional mittens. I spent a few weeks visiting the Gathering Centre in the afternoons. After lots of coaching and a few mishaps (i.e. making my liners inside out), I successfully completed a pair of “boxer” mittens!
