Yet another unique and wholly Canadian way to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday this year – a team of intrepid explorers will be circumnavigating Bylot Ialnd by ski in the coming month. Bylot Island is situated in the Canadian High Arctic which makes for a dangerous and tough journey.
One of the team members is Martin Garcia. I met Martin and his wife Tandi in 2011 when we climbed Island Peak in Nepal’s Himalayas. Martin is a skilled outdoors-man and I for one will be following his progress closely.
Check out Tandi’s blog post which provides lots of detail, including where to follow their progress in the coming month.
The expedition’s website is https://www.bearwitness.ca/contact-information
Be safe Martin!
