We started the day in Barrow with an early morning walk in a light fog. We walked about 5 blocks from our hotel to the shore of the Arctic Ocean. There was a lot of pack ice that had blown in to shore. The winds changed to off shore late in the morning, the sky was clear and sunny and by early evening most of the ice was about 1/2 to 3/4ths of a mile off shore.
We picked up a rental car at 10 am and were on the go until 10 pm (ya gotta love that 24 hours of day light). We hit every sight there was to see. The picture below is of the skull of a 51 foot Bowhead Whale.
