On the Road

Posted on March 4, 2012


For ten days, I was embedded with the men and women of the Arctic Response Company Group (ARCG) for Exercise ARCTIC RAM. Our mission for this training operation was to ride 300 km north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories on snowmobiles to relieve other Canadian Forces troops of their position in the town of Gameti.

A born and bred city girl, I learned quickly the soft snow-covered roads were unpredictable, bumpy, and discreetly dangerous. On the Road is a collection of images detailing small glimpses of life on the road with ARCG soldiers in the Great White North.
