Ammassalik / Tasiilaq - Valley of the Flowers Lake 1 - East Greenland


A small mountain lake that was perfectly hidden very close to the footpath through the valley. There was a small ridge and this on the other side of it. It was a very sheltered place by comparison with the surrounding hills as indicated by the quite lush growth of plants around the edges which were very springy.

I tried to stick to walking on rock though as far as possible as such ecosystems can be very delicate. I was mindful of similar places in Antarctica (though a more harsh climate than this) where footprints on moss banks can be seen years later, so slow are the plants to repair the damage.
