Sewage lagoon at Resolute, Nunavut, in July of 1979. That's waaaay far north, on Cornwallis Island, at 74°42'41.61"N, 95° 3'24.20"W Those yellow flowers are arctic poppies (Papaver radicatum)

1979 My days as an arctic explorer

I had a job interview once, in which an employer for whom I’d previously worked said

“sorry, Andrew, there’s not much work around Montreal this year – but if you want, I can send you to Resolute Bay”. 

With the supreme confidence that only a foolhardy 19 year-old can have, I said
“Great – when do I start?
And where the f___ is Resolute Bay?”
