Rita Marett & Sandra Hannah

We were pleased to accommodate Canadian clients Rita Marett & Sandra Hannah during two weeks of our 'Muskox, Autumn Colours & Aurora' trips. Now living in Burlington, Ontario; Rita recently retired from The Rabat American School in Morocco. Before that, she worked as either a librarian or a principal including at the Shanghai American School in China, the Columbus School in Colombia, and the Halton Board in Ontario for 20 years. Sandra Hannah lives at White Lake, Ontario - and recently retired as a high school biology teacher in Kingston Ontario, where she worked for nearly 30 years. She has traveled all of the world, and lived in Australia for a few years.

Sandra & Rita have been on group canoeing and camping trips together before, and decided to travel together to the Far North.

Rita supplied the words and Sandra the photos - resulting with the following summary of their special experience on the barrenlands of the Far North:

"Dancing with Caribous" is a magical journey along the path of caribou, muskoxen, Native People and explorers."

 


 

"We arrived for our eco-adventure in the deep green of late summer at the end of August, then watched daily as the tundra transformed into deep reds and bright yellows against the blue background of water and sky."

"At night we were dazzled by the purples and greens of the Aurora Borealis."

 

"By the end of our two weeks, chilly nights were creating a sombre landscape that foretold the long winter ahead."

"We were rewarded by our encounters with caribou, musk oxen, and northern birds but also enjoyed exploring the archaeological sites, waterways, eskers, and the wide open spaces."

 

"One moment we would marvel at the expanse and vast beauty of the tundra and then get down on our knees to appreciate the perfection of a plant only a few centimetres tall"

"The main building had an excellent library of books with common themes- the beauty and diversity of this fragile ecology, its environmental importance, and the passion it creates in the people who venture there."
