If you do not like images of mountains as single subject, skip this post. :-) These were captured during two field trips to our Toolik Field station on North Slope in Arctic Alaska this "spring". On the drive up Dalton Highway the light was somewhat hazy and flat, and that is where IR comes to the "rescue". First view of Brooks Range appears when one pass Gobblers Knob, looking north. The low area is among the coldest in North America, and the hills were victim to extensive wildfires a few years ago. The green trees are the few spruce trees that survived, the black ones are burnt. Compare to the hill in the far distance which is almost entirely green. (Please view large). #1 North fork of Koyukuk river. #2 This is not spring melt but overflow that can go on throughout the winter: #3 #4 Still on the south side of Brooks Range: #5 #6 The high areas at Atigun pass: #7 #8 #9 North Slope looking south toward Brooks Range: #10A #10B Arctic logistics. #11 #12 #13 #14
