heading north

i'm packing this morning for a trip North to make photos. the plan is to get as far as Atigun Pass this trip, but, as always, we'll see how things unfold. my nerves always go berserk on the the eve of a trip up the Dalton. i'm hoping for scores of truckers, a small handful of tourists, a cooperative scientist or two, and a team of successful hunters. too much to ask? regardless of the folks up North though, the backdrop is always breathtaking.

the last time I went just as far as the Arctic Circle. the weather was abysmal, but it was late in the year and i had expected a hostile environment. the sun will be with us this time - the sunrise is at 3:01am and sunset at 12:42am right now in Fairbanks, but will slowly grow to 24 hours of light as we approach Coldfoot
