Photo(s) of the Month: Airborne
December 31, 2012
A new year is upon us, as is the time to post photos from the Western Arctic National Parklands taken during the last month. The following photos were taken on 2 December 2012 during a flight where we documented the meager snow depths and radio-tracked muskoxen and dolly varden in and around Noatak National Preserve and Cape Krusenstern National Monument. The time between sunrise and sunset dwindles to less than two hours on the winter solstice, so we fly less often and have few photos to choose from. Nevertheless, we hope you enjoy a glimpse of the Parks in December.

River drainages on the north side of the Kobuk River in Kobuk Valley National Park support a healthy chum salmon run. River drainages on the south side of the Kobuk are better suited for whitefish species such as sheefish that can weigh 60 pounds.
