The lake Wiyâshâkimî, the jewel of the Nunavik

Le lac Wiyâshâkimî, joyau du Nunavik

Quebec is a land of water. With tens of thousands of rivers and three million lakes, it is rather rare to run more than 30 miles without crossing the blue facility. It is with amazement that I see the magnitude of this wealth during a flight in an old plane brand de Havilland Beaver. The Direction of the lake Wiyâshâkimî, formerly named lake to the Clear Water. In my opinion, it is among the most beautiful lakes of Quebec. This meteorite crater binary with a sprinkling of islands is the paradise of sea kayaking in an isolated area. The first night I planted my tent on a rocky point surrounded by mountains. In the distance, the landscape unfolds beautifully on the rocks typical of the tundra. At the time back in my tent for the night, with a sunset that was breathtaking, a green curtain illuminates suddenly the heavens. A moment of magic settles ! I then took the opportunity for me to wander around the surrounding area. I came across a skull of a caribou, which is cut on the shower of stars… A vision totally bewildering.
