Canada – British Colombia V

In honour of Canada Day today, a card of a famous icon of Canadiana, the inukshuk. Inukshuk (ᐃᓄᒃᓱᒃ) are built by Inuit in the Canadian North as reference points and navigation aids in the largely featureless Arctic tundra. As such, they wouldn't have traditionally been found in Whistler, on Canada's West Coast. Whistler was the site of ski events for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games whose logo was, of course, an inukshuk, so I suspect the one pictured here was built in that honour.

Happy Canada Day! Joyeuse fête du Canada!

Self-adhesive stamp from a previously featured set of baby animal, featured here is the moose, Alces alces.
