North Slope

We just returned from a fantastic few days up on the North Slope! We had gorgeous weather and spectacular views in every direction. Our campsite was just below a ridge we could climb that afforded us a vista that went for miles and miles.

We took small teams out on short excursions during the day and were able to collect water from the river that was just starting to melt and saw wildlife including caribou, moose and ptarmigan. It would be fair to say our timetable was "relaxed" as we didn't HAVE to be anywhere at any particular time. A wonderful end to the season.


What can be better than this?
