OK, I have to admit, I actually left Ellesmere Island 3 weeks ago. I've been a bit of a slacker in the past couple of weeks with updating the blog, but I still have some pics to show you from my flight home.
The weather was fantastic on July 9, when I flew out of Grise Fiord. Here is the town on take off:

Isn't it beautiful? They even pay me money to be on these flights. And since it was a Saturday, they paid me overtime! You can see a couple of glaciers in the photo below:
More fiords and ice as we follow the southern coast of Ellesmere Island:
Lots of glaciers now in the background mountains:
The ones below are of the south cape of Ellesmere Island:
Still more glaciers:
And the last look at the south coast of Ellesmere as we head across Jones Sound to cross Devon Island. Lots of glaciers:
I'll show you some Devon Island photos, and the Mars on Earth site on Devon Island as seen from the air, so stay tuned!
