Lean On Me, was taken during a ‘snack break’ on the Southern Nahanni River. In the middle of a very hot and long day of paddling, our group of families stopped at a creek for refreshment. Water; rivers such as these allow me connect with the Northern landscape, taking me places that would otherwise be left unexplored. Like the two girls seen in the image: leaning on one another for stability, I can rely on waterways to grant me access to the land. That is my connection to water.
