The river that runs through Kanger, called Akuliarusiarsuup Kuua in Greenlandic, but also known as Watson River. It was a block from the main street. This river is very milky looking because it is formed by melt-water from the ice sheet. The grey rocks surrounding the river are not ice, as some have asked me.
