Notes from 800 Feet

Welcome to Notes from 800 Feet! Northwest Alaska is home to four parks, none of which have any road access. The best way to see these parks is from the sky. In Notes from 800 Feet, park pilots, staff and researchers will share their view of Kobuk Valley National Park, Noatak National Preserve, Cape Krusenstern National Monument and Bering Land Bride from the cockpit of a plane.
