Flight from Resolute to Arctic Bay

Here we are taking off from Resolute on July 10.  If I ever spend any time there, I want to try to walk around these old buildings at the airport that you can see in the photo below.  Lots of them are very old and no longer in use.  Some or most are government buildings, some might be military too:

A peninsula pointing south:

North coast of Baffin Island:

We fly over some cool canyons as we cross the Brodeur peninsula:

I'm such a sucker for a pretty ice pattern.  This is in Admiralty inlet:

Entrance to Adams sound, which takes you to Arctic Bay:

Flying over the southwest lobe of Arctic Bay the town, and Arctic Bay the body of water:

Next up, I'll show you the new airport at Arctic Bay that opened just this year.
