Greenland Muskox

muskox in greenland
I just returned from Greenland today. Very strange to come from the vast peace of the ice cap to the 90 degree weather and frenetic pace of life here in the states. Greenland is not all frozen waste land. On the edges near the sea during summer It can reach over 60 degrees. It is lush, green and full of life. This is a wild Muskox. The local guides have named Peter. I found him on the way to the Russell Glacier just out side of Kangerlussuaq. I asked my guide just how much they had to pay him to appear at the right time to photograph him. “nothing he said, we just have to change his batteries now and then”.
