While on a 7 day trek through the Akshayuk Pass in Auyuittuq National Park we were spoilt with this amazing evening light and cloud. What made it even more special was that we were in a perfect location to view Thor Peak and other peaks along the edge of the glacial valley that stand guardian about 1km above the valley floor.
