If you are ready to explore the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes or the Serpentine Hot Springs, park the Airstream and unpack the car. The Western Arctic National Parklands can't be reached by road. Even for those who live in the surrounding communities, reaching the parks can be expensive and challenging. Until you board the float plane, hop in the boat, drive the snowmachine, paddle, hike, mush, or ski to reach them, you can connect with and learn more about the parks on the official NPS websites, Twitter, and Facebook.
If you're on Facebook and need a new cover photo for your timeline, download this image from Noatak National Preserve and start imagining yourself here:

Caribou have been hunted in the same spot at Onion Portage for the last 9000 years. This site in Kobuk Valley National Park is now a National Historic Landmark. Local area residents still hunt caribou here during the animals’ southward migration in the fall.
