Tundra Detail

Plant Detail Photograph

After a long and wonderful trip to Canada's north, you can expect a number of trip photographs. Hoping that we haven't yet worn out your patience, here's yet another one. This time it's from the Northwest Territories about two hundred kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Here's a close-up of the ground cover: Crowberry, Lingonberry, Kinnikinnick, Willow, Caribou Horn lichen, and other small plants cover the tundra, barely an inch in height.

The landscape photo gives a broader view of the area. The bright red areas are covered in Kinnikinnick, which were in their fall colour at the time.
