Tired but happy, despite all the
difficulties of the trip, we found ourselves in a Greenlandic
"Shangri-la"called Kangerlussaq. The majestic fjord,
the incredible rocks, several wonderful waterfalls - what a place!
We had reached the far point of Geo
Adventure 2004 right at the end. "Kanger" didn't yield
as many fluorescent specimens as we had hoped but it was an amazing
place to spend our final day and night of rock collecting. We
only spent one night camping there but by 11-12 o'clock all the
adventurers had gone to bed except one - me. I stayed awake,
continuing to search until 2 am, when the sunlight began to return.
The temperature was mild and I took little sleep-breaks right
on the rocks. The extra hours paid off because I recovered a
bag-full of the unusual Kanger multi-color specimens, the ones
with a bit of pastel green, blue and orange. Sadly they were
not big honkers like I had hoped, but they're nice small ones.
And what a pleasure to have collected them in person!
