Visiting an igloo: Tuktoyaktuk part 6

Tuktoyaktuk recently had an igloo-building contest for its sunrise festival.

This “family-size” igloo was declared the winner, because it was the closest to the traditional shelters which have been used here for thousands of years.

As you can see, an Igloo is very hard to spot from the outside. However, the thin walls allow light to filter into a pleasing blue light.

  1. Ah!
    Now I know
    Where the turtles
    Got their idea from
