When we saw this chunk of caribou fur...

 ...attached to a hunk of hide not completely dried out, we definitely took a moment to nervously look around for a grizzly.

Lake ice

I've been loving watching the lake ice melt. It just kind of slowly recedes from shore, making these beautiful watery textures.

Spring sprung

 Winter really held on through May; we had our last snow on June 1st. But since then, spring has been taking hold. I think earlier in the season I posted this photo of my favorite walking path.


That was then and this is now, same road!

I'm told if I give it another month, the white that turned to brown will bloom all gorgeous green. Hard to believe, but I'm happy to stick around and see if it's true!

Arctic birthday party

Polar friends, take a look at this crowd; you might recognize a face or two!

All others, feast your eyes on a Toolik birthday party: some booze on a picnic table outside the birthday girl's weatherport, surrounded by a bunch of people she knows from years in Antarctica. And the gorgeous sunny skies and long shadows at 10pm.
