From Alpefjord in the morning, we sailed to nearby Gateau Point for the afternoon.   If I correctly identify where this is, I think it’s near the mouth of Segelsällskapets Fjord, not far from Karlene Island.

What makes this location special is the incredible layered rock formations..

This is an ancient Inuit trap, for a fox or a hare.

Anthropomorphic, it seems to me but just a natural rock assemblage.

You can also clearly see the layers in the strata of the surrounding cliffs.
