Commute

.
I had to fly to the village of Notak yesterday for work. Here are a few photos from my "commute" taken through the dirty window of a Piper Navajo.


The mouth of the Noatak River where it empties into Kotzebue Sound.




Hugo Mountain.




In the lower part of this photo you can see Paul's Slough.




Lower Noatak canyon.




Again.




The confluence of the Noatak and Aggie (Agasheshok) Rivers.




The Village of Noatak.





I am leaving for Anchorage this morning and will be there til Saturday evening. I will try and post while I am down there. I have some Kotzebue stuff to post and try and post some Anchorage stuff too.

I love traveling up here. But the only little villages I go to are the ones you can drive to.

Have fun in Anchorage and enjoy this warm weather we're having!

I'm stealing your Paul's Slough photo cause that's RIGHT where our "campsite" is. :)

It looks like Noatak is divided into two distinct parts - a left and a right - is it really that way, or is the picture deceiving?

Great pictures as usual. Very interesting country. I would like to arrange a trip to Notak this coming summer. It would be great to travel there by boat if possible.
Thanks again

Wow. That is so beautiful. I've heard that nothing compares to the scenery of Alaska and I think that might be true.
