Sunny Barrow!

Baleen Palm Tree, Barrow, AK 2013

    I just returned from a week in Barrow, Alaska. Barrow is the farthest north community in North America. I was there to complete three assignments for First Alaskans Magazine. More on those later. As you can see I was basking in sunny skies and balmy -20ยบ F temps. I thought I'd share one of my favorites from the trip. The fronds on the "palm tree" are actually baleen from the Baleen Whale which is harvested by the Inupiaq of the village.  More soon!
