Aurora Borealis, Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada edge of the Beaufort Sea - this IS remote, and try driving there on the ice road - make sure you don't try when it decides to break up - definitely NOT fun!
A beaver gets some time out of his pen at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) near Madden, Alta. on Feb. 8, 2012. The beaver was only four days old when he was brought into AIWC after a rancher near Big Valley checked on a dam on his property following some flooding. The rancher found the beaver huddled by its deceased mother and rescued the animal. (JAMES EMERY/QMI AGENCY)
