It's a winter wonderland here in Hay River!!
|Hay River Ice Road!|
Despite being an faux intern for the day, today was still pretty fun. I went into the office for a few hours this morning for some general orientation and then Stacey and I went to the treatment center just outside of town to give a presentation on Healthy Eating. I spent the afternoon seeing a client for diabetes and diabetic nephropathy and in a HR meeting filling out forms, signing my life away and learning about my benefits etc. To get to the treatment center we got to drive on the ICE ROAD!!! Ok so I should clarify...there are 2 ice roads in Hay River. One goes from Hay River to Yellowknife across Great Slave Lake. The second one goes from one shore of Hay River to the other shore. To put this in perspective, the point in which the road crosses the river is only about 100m wide. The ice road we took today was the short one, but it was still really exciting! Its one more thing I can cross off my list of must-dos while in Hay River. I'd also like to apologize for how fuzzy and blurry all the pictures I take on my phone seem to be. Ice roads are not the smoothest of roads and I took this one while driving. I'm also thinking that maybe my pictures wouldn't be so fuzzy if I started wearing my glasses.
Tomorrow should be another fun filled day at the office! Friday's are admin days so we won't be seeing any clients and I'll be learning the ropes in terms of charting protocol. Plus it's already FRIDAY!! Woot Woot!
