Hundreds of caribou showed up today during the time we passed through to work about 530 am and the time we returned to our housing about 6 pm. Several were bedded down right on the black sand beach, along with a couple new calves. Looks like they’re there to get some breeze and keep the bugs down.
A few chicks are hatching from the water fowl. Also saw a fox running under one of the pipelines along the road.
All the caribou out on the tundra remind me of other deer family out on the east Africa plains, especially under the bright arctic sun.
