351 viewsThe 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.

304 viewsThe nearby lake in Kanger, called Tasersuatsiaq in Greenlandic, but also known as Lake Ferguson. The lake is frozen in this photo but had thawed by the time I returned in mid-June. The building is the local row club, as rowing is popular here in the summer. The lake is home to a kind of fish called Arctic char.
