Last campsite before the Bay. The above photo was originally published in The Keewaydin Way. Photos: Dave Chapin

"Camped on the Thlewiaza River, seven miles from the Bay, north of the tree line on the Barrens in the territory of Nunavut. This was the last campsite for Section A before being picked up by Inuit boats at the mouth of the river. As there were no trees, the fly was tied down to the canoes. Despite the wind, headnets were necessary for protection from the blackflies. At dusk, a herd of 165 caribou appeared across the river and crossed just downstream."
