Standing On The Arctic Ocean



One of our regular readers, Sharon Crowell, has put together a video slideshow of a vacation trip she made to Canada’s Great White North during the winter!

Now of course you need to ask yourself, why would someone go on vacation north in the winter? Well for one thing, it is worth the experience to live life without sun 24 hours a day. For another, Sharon has family living in Inuvik, in the North West Territories and what better way to spend a winter vacation than with family in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Some of the highlights of Sharon’s vacation, besides visiting her son and daughter-in-law, was seeing the North during the dark days of winter, a drive down the Dempster Highway to the Artic Circle to see the sun come up at 2 p.m. and a three hour drive on the Ice Highway to Tuktoyaktuk, (pronounced like it’s spelled) and the opportunity to stand and drive on the Arctic Ocean. And that is without even mentioning the dogsledding…..this is winter cottage country at it’s finest!!!

This is a beautiful video, a testament to what makes Canada The Truth North Strong and Free.
