Whales are headed this way !!

A phone call from Whaling Captain, Rex Rock, in Point Hope, was made to the President of the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission – Eugene Brower here in Barrow !  In about 4 days, we should see these whales migrating past the point here in Barrow Alaska.

Photos of Day 9 & 10 on the trail, are being processed and uploaded.

Now, you can easily see, some of the two story high pieces of ice that are all over the place out here, you can’t recognize the size of them, until, you see something ‘normal size’ beside or near them. Then it is obvious !!
