Marty’s photo of the day #4055: Deb and I are hoping to give our dog, Nellie, her first taste of life above the Arctic Circle sometime next year.

Marty’s photo of the day #3523: I took this photo north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. As you can see, the tree line (where trees can no longer grow) is approaching. As I continued north, these scraggly trees would give way to tundra.
Marty’s photo of the day #3522: I thought about cropping this photo, so you could see the Dall sheep better; then I thought better of it.

Marty’s photo of the day #3279: Today we go scenic, with a photo I took in Alaska, well north of the Arctic Circle.

Marty’s photo of the day #2501: You are looking at the rarest snake in the world—the elusive tundra taipan! Scientists didn’t believe that snakes could survive north of the Arctic Circle until I documented it with this photograph, taken less than a mile from the Arctic Ocean. It is believed that the tundra taipan’s venom […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2233: I don’t remember much about this photo, except that I took it in Canada, north of the Arctic Circle, and I was trying to be artsy.
Marty’s photo of the day #2070: This is an Arctic ground squirrel that I photographed on a stunning day, a little north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska.
