What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide in Kotzebue for a pre-trip meeting where we’ll look over the maps and double-check our gear. At the meeting, we’ll schedule a rendezvous time for the next morning’s flight.
Weather permitting we’ll fly from Kotzebue in the morning to our camp in the DeLong Mountains. We’ll set up our tents in a good location to spot wildlife and to explore the surrounding mountains. In the afternoon we should have time to head out for a hike, or if you prefer, simply kick back and watch the light change over the Brooks Range. Back at camp, there will be a hot and nourishing dinner and likely an early night after a long day.
We have three full days to watch wildlife, hike, search for ancient campsites, and photograph the scenery. Each day will bring something different, and our activities will be dictated by the weather, our energy, and interests.
Assuming good weather, we’ll say goodbye to our camp in the mountains and make a few final photographs before a bush plane arrives to ferry us back to Kotzebue.
