Arctic Safari

It struck me this last hitch that the oil field might well turn into a wildlife viewing safari someday – long into the future is my guess, when the oil field is pumped dry.

The roads there now wind through the tundra, and abound with wildlife this time of the year. Arctic loons, oldsquaw, swans, whitefront geese, canadian geese, common eider, snow bunting, caribou, arctic fox, red fox, and musk ox can all be seen from the road – many just tens of feet away.
