June 6, 2008 9:30 PM A young caribou cow watches to see if I constitute a threat, from which she is prepared to bolt and run -


July 4, 2008 7:00 PM On the Chandalar Shelf, approaching the last ascent to the top of Atigun Pass -


June 30, 2010 2:30 PM Looking east from the Galbraith Lake campground across the lake at the upper end of Atigun Gorge -


July 2, 2010 1:00 PM From the "Last Chance" BLM wayside rest stop at Mile 354.5, looking out across the vast tundra where the Brooks Range foothills meet the Arctic Coastal Plain -


July 4, 2008 7:00 PM About halfway up the steep climb to the Chandalar Shelf, innocent looking in good weather, but terrifying to many riders when it's wet -


July 4, 2008 7:30 PM North of Atigun Pass the highway remains in the Atigun valley, following the river as it winds downhill toward Atigun Gorge -


July 5, 2008 1:00 AM Twenty-five miles south of Deadhorse, with the sun shining directly south out of the northern sky, my shadow speeds ahead, anxious to get somewhere else -


May 2010 Looking southward from the Chandalar Shelf at rain clouds threatening a deluge down in the Dietrich valley -


July 2, 2010 4:30 PM Sukukpak Mt is never the same two sightings in a row, and is always photogenic, especially in the afternoon sunshine -


July 4, 2008 12:30 PM More of the fabulous fields of fireweed seen in 2008, this one at about Mile 83 -
