The fog lifts and we are off. The hour and a half flight to Prudhoe Bay gives us glimpses of …

The Last of the "Last Frontier"

A travel blog entry by dixiej


Alaska's nickname is The Last Frontier. If this is the case, Barrow is the last of that last frontier!

We landed in Barrow to 22 mph winds with an actual temp of -31 for a whopping wind chill of -63. Now we spent months researching our gear with -40 in mind. I'll be the first to let you know, we didn't stand a chance under these conditions …

Top of the world

... but there is no sign of life here. There is no grass or trees even in summer. There is a little bit of plant life outside of the city, which caribou eat, but I did not see it.

I have been roughly another 500 miles north of here when I went to Svalbard two years ...

... stringent security checks (actually at Valdez there were none). Luckily I had brought my passport with me & not left it at Sheila & Eddie’s as I toyed with doing.

My American Guide who has lived here for forty years took me on a 2 1/2 hour tour. Bouncing along on some of the worst streets, it had been raining for three days and they had to wait

    Very re remote place in the winter. Hotel is a little rough but the staff we met made up for it. Very nice, frinedly people. The elements take a beating on the facility but they did have a great space heater in the room that helped keep it warm. Vist this place in the summer.
