Dene oral tradition refers to a deadly monster who would sometimes confront kayakers as they attempted to travel or hunt.
In earlier times, the idea of this fanged and tailed crocodile-like creature trying to grab a kayak and its occupant would have inspired a great deal of consternation!
Although it certainly still does, the weather is now defeating this monster snow carving. We are much warmer and the sun is shining, a very welcome change!
We still have a lot of snow on the lakes, but it, and the ice underneath it, will soon be gone.
Happy week! 🙂
