I'm an Inukshuk

Inukshuk at sunset. A what? As we learned at the Canadian northern house exhibit, it's a stone landmark or cairn built by the peoples of the Arctic region of North America to show the way or mark a significant spot. You may have noticed that the official Vancouver 2010 Olympics logo features an Inukshuk just like this. I found out after taking this photo that this particular Inukshuk is one of the best known in Vancouver (it appears in several postcards). It also happens to be very close to where we stayed while visiting that fine city, which meant I was able to run here at the last minute and grab this photo when I noticed the beautiful sunset.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
