Even in northern Greenland sun can be quite strong. Long exposure to sunlight of this kind can cause severe sunburns at least to me. I made such an experience on an earlier hike in Greenland. This time, I had sun protection with me and I also used it. I added just another layer of sun creme on top of the mosquito repellent and after a while the sun creme started to nicely blend with the mosquitoe repellent and sweat to yield a greasy slimy liquid that started to run down my skin.
After passing through a hilly area with a few lakes, I finally reached the tip of the next fjord and made an evening break. The weather was still sunny and close to the sea the bull fly plague has vanished almost completely.
The coast at this point is rocky and I stopped for a rest on a big rock reaching into the sea. I put down my backpack, put on another jacket, and prepared a good meal for dinner. I enjoyed the evening, the magnificent view on the fjord, and the prospect of reaching Kangerluk though late but still that day.
The next section of my hike was like the section before. The bull fly plague however was over now and since the sun was not so high above the horizon temperatures got lower. Hiking was now easier.
