July 31: snow day

August 1, 2011 – 11:33 pm

The best side benefit of arctic field work is meeting fun people; next best is the hiking. We got snowed on yesterday on our hike near Atigun pass.


These Brooks Range hikes are really incredible due to the vast treeless terrain. There are no trails and it is rare to see another hiker. It’s typically slow and grueling to cross the landscape, but always worth it.
