Doesn't Look That Warm to Me...

... But it's getting there! And that's not good news. This man, Simon Qamanirq, who had his picture taken on the trail out of Pangnirtung heading into the Auyuituq National Park recently, has just arrived in Igloolik along with the other members of Will Steger's Global Warming 101 project. I suspect he and his companions would have much to say about how rapidly the north is warming up compared to just a few years ago.

If you haven't already visited their site, check out Nunablog, Ian and Jennifer's blog from Igloolik. Lots of fun things have been going on there recently as well as the arrival of Simon and his friends.

Geez, Michael. I was just starting to thaw out from the winter, and you show me that picture (which, by the way, is excellent). I feel like the ground hog who saw his shadow and has to hybernate another six weeks :)
