In late July of 2016, four men from Wenatchee pushed off from the shore of Point Lake in Canada’s Northwest Territory and launched down the Coppermine River. After 24 days of paddling, the four reached their destination, the Arctic Ocean and the Inuit village of Kugluktuk.

Andy Dappen, Neal Hedges, Paul Hessburg and Robbie Scott give a presentation about their 350-mile canoe trip in the Canadian Arctic. The cowboy poetry of  Paul Hessburg forms the verbal skeleton of the presentation while photos of these lonely lands flesh out the words.
