Climbing in the Brooks Range, Alaska.

Climbing on the Pipeline, Brooks Mountain Range, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

I just got back from a trip to Skolai Pass, in Wrangell – St. Elias, and we got SLAMMED by the weather. It was so ugly, I couldn’t help but feel bad for the people on the trip. I didn’t even take my camera out of the backpack the whole week. So I don’t have any images from this trip. That’s a first for me. Instead, I’ll post some more images from previous trips, including this one from our highly vaunted ANWR Drilling Trip earlier this month. I’m not going to say that this climbing around was my idea – and far be it for me to snitch, but I think you can tell from the looks of the 2 people with me that it was their responsibility – they literally forced me onto this pipeline for the photo. 🙂 🙂

Erika and Bob were great folks, and we had an excellent trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    Sitting there with no tool in hand drill-boy? 🙂 Seems tapping into that baby would be enough to mix with your oatmeal for many bowls into the future.

    Yeah Carl, it looks like they broke your arm getting you up there!LOL Hate it that your trip this year turned ot to be such a weather nightmare! Things will improve. George Bush has a burr up his butt this week: Nancy Pelosi!! That should make your day, at least!!

    Hey Mark,

    I could never steal something so precious – did you see Lord of the Rings? 🙂

    Beth – Yeah, I really had to be dragged up there. I was scared of the heights. 🙂
