Flower Valley

Kuusuaq is the river flowing the short distance to the sea at Narsarsuaq to bring meltwater from the Kuusuup Sermia glacier about five miles away. Its valley is flat and prone to flood but there is a parallel valley at a higher level which allows easy access inland via Flower Valley with views of the glacier. This is a record of that walk and flowers seen around Narsarsuaq.
