NITMILUK NATIONAL PARK #5

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
As you go deeper into the gorge, the landscape changes.

There is a 65 km trail which enable you to see the 13 parts of the gorge and reach the waterfall at the end. You need to be pretty fit to do that as you have to carry your tent, food and water as the trek takes a few days. It must be something fantastic to do.

Like all the aboriginal people, the Jawoyn people have the right attitude and respect about nature:
“Spirit of country:

Country is like a mother.
The land, plants, animals, rocks, everything is connected. Not just environmentally but also spiritually.
Some parts of the country have good spirits. We have to be careful of moving rocks in this river.
Land has always given to us for very special reasons. We need to respect the country, like burn off in the right season.” (From a sign along the river)

V2 shows the adventurous way to discover this amazing gorge.
V3 and V4 show the reason why I chose a bigger boat.

Excellent documentary shots, V 1 my favourite although V 2 gives a sense of scale with the inclusion of the canoe: having seen V 3 and 4 I can understand why you"d want as big a boat as possible.
