Photobucket The ice is breaking up and moving out. Photobucket This is the best time of year. Photobucket It's not very dramatic right now, but when the ice really gets moving it can put on quite the show. Photobucket It jumbles and piles up, sometimes into huge piles. Photobucket Too bad I'm stuck in the office all day. When I look out my office here is the view that tortures me all day long. It is so nice out :)

Photobucket While we were out there we saw several long-tailed jaegers. Photobucket Ahna said that in Inupiaq they are called Isingak (IH-sing-uk. Photobucket She said "We also used to call then 'shit hawks' in english. Photobucket I asked "why is that?" Photobucket And she replied, "I dunno, we just did".

Spring is Chugging Along

. Photobucket It's spring in the arctic! Photobucket It happens every year, but every time it does it seems like a miracle. Photobucket Today was chilly and windy, but at least it wasn't snowing :) Photobucket Lots of water on top of the ice. Photobucket Here you can see a big piece of ice that has broken up and shifted. It won't be long now. .
