Alas, my time in the tundra has come to a close. Suffice it to say, it was an incredible trip. So much beauty, so much laughter, so much peace in the desolation.

Why hike when you can helicopter?
The ridge which marks the transition zone into the foothills of the Brooks Range.
Ivotuk Mountain (in the background) and general alpine tundra beauty.
I just can't get enough of the view from above.
After working in the desert for so many years, working in such a wet ecosystem was a treat.
This is for you, Dad. The PC-12 which shuttled us from our camp to Anchorage.
