Further into the Tasiusaq Ice Fjord

Prompted by the Viking Explorer and staff at the Leif Eriksson Hostel to check out an apparently well-preserved Norse ruin, I headed out towards Tasiusaq again, this time continuing along the ice fjord West of the town. If staying in Tasiusaq, continuing further to Ipiuttat, a decent sized hill that juts out in front of the glacial calving face, would be a must-do but it was simply too far for today.

The Norse ruin was just after the creek crossing beyond Tasiusaq (perhaps one-hour walking from Tasiusaq)
