Barnes Ice Cap

A high resolution image of the Barnes Ice Cap on Baffin Island from NASA.

This is an East (top) to West (botton) strip directly through the center of the ice cap. Notice the clamshell-like ripples through the surface. These are exposed bands of dust mixed in with the deposited snow that has been exposed over time by snow melt. Notice also the network of melt water streams.

I want to go there someday. Igloolik to Clyde River seems doable.
