A Remnant of the Ice Age

Ranger Recommendation

Once you have landed on Radio Hill find a good campsite out of the wind. From there one can do day hikes in any direction. If you're up for a long hike, head to the coast. Searching for muskox? They can be anywhere. In spring, birds abound as they migrate to this luscious land allowing for opportunties to discover rare Eurasian species arriving from Russia and Asia. Don't forget your waterproof footwear and bug repellant. The drainages throughout this area can be marshy and full of mosquitoes in the summer.
