... down the road and nothing is paved here. I guess the permafrost can really affect the pavement, so they don't pave and you are constantly walking in slush/sand. It is may now, so there is 24 hours of daylight, but it still snows here. The last few cities in Alaska that I went to were very mountainous and scenic, but Barrow is a desert. It sounds strange calling a desert in a place north of the Arctic ...

The majority of passengers are men & many of them are asleep or have their eyes closed so are not interested in the view whereas I am straining my neck to see outside. Admittedly as soon as we took off we were in cloud but now, 15 ...

visited the cultural center (went in the back door and ...
