Where I went: BARROW, ALASKA

Barrow, Alaska

Northernmost human settlement in North America, up in the arctic. Was only about -25 to -30 C when I was there. ( like -22 F )

Yes, I was freezing my man-tits off.

It was a homecoming of sorts. To the place that changed my life in many ways because of a book that became a movie. Time now, to put all that well in the past and move on. This was a symbolic "goodbye" to all that, on the day of my birthday. No phone, no net. Just me and my thoughts on the shore of the Arctic Ocean.

I'll put a lot more pictures up later.

And I thought Calgary, Alberta was a frozen wasteland. O_o

But some beautifully stark and dramatic shots. Thanks for sharing them!
