Minimize Yukon River, Canada

The windy Yukon River ambles through this Flock-1 image from 19 September 2016.

The satellite caught the snow covered Old Crow Flats, deep inside the Arctic Circle, a vast wetland residing within Canada's Vunut National Park.

From caribou to grizzly bears, the remote and unspoiled national park plays temporary host to different migratory animals, including waterfowl.

Notice in particular how the September snows cover the landscape, but the various bodies of water are still free of ice.
