1985 Northern Discovery Flight
Late in the evening of June 20th (10:00 pm or so), we got our first look at the incredible Mackenzie Delta, with the dusty Dempster Highway crossing it. At Inuvik (YEV), I got a photo of sunlit flags flying over the terminal building right at midnight while waiting for a shuttle to a hotel in town, the Eskimo Inn. I'd seen photos of the sun touching the horizon and going back up without setting, but was completely surprised to see the sun go nowhere near the horizon before starting its climb again.
