Alaskan Landscapes

The trip to Barrow is a long one from New York City, but is not without spectacular and rewarding scenery. These photos were taken on the flight from Fairbanks to Barrow, over the Brooks Range, which tops out at more than 9,000 feet. Seeing Alaska from the air helped me understand why there are no roads to Barrow.

Today is a lab day for our group. They’re reviewing video footage they shot yesterday, running experiments on ice cores collected earlier in the week and preparing to head out on the ice tomorrow. More details on our day to follow.
