From the co-pilot’s seat

Marty’s photo of the day #4238: I shot this photo from the co-pilot’s seat of a tiny airplane (called a Helio), heading north over the Brooks Range, on the way to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This short excerpt, from my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, […]

Marty’s photo of the day #4223: I photographed this red fox in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. A slightly different version of this photo appears in my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico.

Hiking with the herd

Hiking with the herd

Marty’s photo of the day #4072: I shot this photo many years ago, when Deb and I spent a day hiking with the Porcupine caribou migration in Canada’s Northwest Territories. Roughly 200,000 caribou take part in the 1,500 mile round trip between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. It is the longest […]

This one was my least favorite. We called it Camp Desolation, because it featured little more than hard, rocky ground and biting wind off the Arctic […]

You can see for miles!

You can see for miles!

Marty’s photo of the day #3832: Not all of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is this flat, but it gets like this as you move north and approach the Arctic Ocean. This untouched photo shows just how light it stays in late June. I shot it at 3:00 in the morning! Also note how far […]

Permafrost

Permafrost

Marty’s photo of the day #3824: Today’s photo is more educational than pretty. You are looking at permafrost bulging through the bank of the Jago River in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This is just about the only way a person can see permafrost without digging.

After midnight in ANWR

After midnight in ANWR

Marty’s photo of the day #3814: I took this photo after midnight, in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (there was 24 hours of sunlight in June). Deb and I had canoed thirty-five miles across the refuge, and here the Jago River is a couple hundred yards from entering the Arctic Ocean (to my back in […]
