455 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.
