Day 6 - Frederiksdal

We sailed deep into Scoresby Sund and branched off to the Nord Est Fjord, opposite Frederiksdal, and we were anchoring right in front of our landing area. It was a glacial river plain leading inland where Muskoxen were spotted grazing in the nearby flats. We were all anxious to get off the ship and stretch our legs and walk on the tundra of Greenland. Once the group was assembled we slowly made our way towards these skittish animals and moved as close as possible in order to get some good photos and not disturb them. Muskox are the most truly Arctic of the northern land mammals.
