travel tuesday: greenland

Today I am looking at Greenland in an attempt to embrace the cold weather that has re-visited the mid-west.
Greenland is interesting. It is physiographically considered to be part of North America, it is politically associated with Europe, Greenland is a part of the Kingdom of Denmark but is also an autonomous country. To top it off most of it is cold and icy rather than green and lush. 81% is covered in ice sheet but the southern part is green in the summer

Greenland's highlights include dog sledding, hiking, fjords, marine life watching and in the Autumn months you can see the Northern Lights aka Aurora Borealis .
