Eroding permafrost on a beautiful day.
Last weekend I took my visitors out as far north as the road would take us. Honestly, I didn’t think we’d get much further than the old airfield, but the the snow actually improved driving conditions beautifully and we made it all the way out to the end of the road to Point Barrow (Nuvuk). We beachcombmed for sea glass and in the process I found this wonderful piece of driftwood in the snow.
Earlier this week I was pleasantly surprised to find a large sea nettle floating along the beach. It was probably my last opportunity to add to the series this summer. The big waves made lots of bubbles, which really added in this case.
