Aerial Views - 4 - East Greenland, greenland, travel

The perfectly clear skies and incredible visibility mean you get a crystal clear view of the geography of the region. You can see eroded slopes and how South facing ones are more so than North facing due to a greater amount of thawing speeding up the freeze-thaw cycle. I particularly like the almost horizontal "table" to the right of this hill a few hundred feet above sea level.
