It’s been a while.
Life above the Arctic Circle has been amazing and exhausting at the same time. There has been an abundance of daylight since I arrived in the Brooks Range in June. The days have blended into one long period filled with constant change. After a long winter the reemergence of life seems overwhelming. I almost feel like there is no time to rest. Every week a new set of wildflowers appeared, wilted and went to seeds,. Berries are beginning to ripen, and the end of summer is approaching fast.
I have seen musk ox, caribou, fox, and lynx.
I have climbed mountains, crossed the tundra, and waded through rivers.
Today, is the first time I find the time to post a picture and collect some thoughts.
The picture was taken near Galbraith Lake at one o’clock in the morning.
More to come.
