This image depicts a time when the artist got lost while searching for a food cache. The inscription reads: "When I was heading back, I knew where my tracks were, and I had better navigation. I camped a couple of times, because I was on the tundra where no man ever stepped. I did not want to starve to death, so I was determined to get the cache that I buried during summer when we were caribou hunting by boat."
