A stone marker (inukshuk) sits on the crest of a hill above Iqaluit in Nunavut, Canada. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.)  These traditional Inuit stone markers are built to serve as landmarks in permafrost areas where there are no trees or other distinctive features. In the distance, a taxi climbs the grade on the Road to Nowhere, so named because Iqaluit isn't connected by road to the mainland?or to other parts of Baffin Island.
