280 viewsA view of the entire town of Kanger from the top of a nearby hill. You can see the landing strip and airport in the background and the series of buildings that form the main street in the foreground. I was expecting snow and ice when I showed up, but my first experience in Greenland was drab, rocky hills and sandy terrain. The weather was brisk but not very cold.
