DANMARK’S HAVN

76˚46.2’N, 18˚40.2’W. (8 August) This has been a working meteorological station since 1948 currently with about 80 workers.  The permanent population of the base is eight. Danmarkshavn is also known as the northernmost location on the coast of the Greenland Sea that non-icebreaking vessels can pass through. Therefore, it is resupplied by cargo ship in August every other year. It is located halfway along the cost of NE Greenland National Park.  I was lucky to be on another of Nikita’s walks.  There were amazing rocks with stripes and patterns in, pink, orange, brown, black.
