We are officially in the Arctic Circle! Of course on the road there is a weighpoint where you can pull in and play on the arctic circle line. There were also snow drifts, which have turned to ice and are rapidly melting as summer sets in. People have built cairns using rocks to signify their achievement for making it to the Arctic Circle...

And here is our family cairn... despite not quite spelling our name right, Jie Jie was quite proud of her little plaque!!
