Having seen seals, penguins, icebergs, and eternal snow of the Antarctic and southern end of the world, Bill Priedhorsky and Melissa Bartlett headed in the opposite direction, due north from New Mexico, to explore the Canadian Arctic. They stayed at Bathurst Inlet Lodge, a historic if rustic facility at the northern end of mainland Canada, about 40 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Majority ownership in the lodge is held by the local Inuit, who took quiet pleasure in showing off their special corner of the world. A few weeks before arrival, the inlet was frozen shore to shore.
