Quick run up the Dalton

A friend joined me for a quick run up The Haul Road in the Beetle to do some camping and poke around for caribou. It was the Bug’s first/last/only road trip of the season, which is a bit depressing when one thinks about it, but I’ve been damn busy this summer. It was a beautiful few days out on the tundra, if a tad chilly in the morning at 20 degs.

Wildlife was everywhere. Moose, bear, caribou, dall sheep, muskox, sandhill cranes, and thousands of waterfowl. It was a nice escape from the bustle of Fairbanks.

Try to find the grizzly in the pic above.
