Out to Sea on the Ice

Our team spent a few hours out on snowmobiles to check on a colleague's prototype seismic sensor and go see about the visibility at Point Barrow. The most exciting piece of this adventure is that my goggles didn't fog up and I could see well for the entire journey. This was refreshing after last years' snafu with goggles and instantly freezing fog.


The second most exciting part was seeing a small polar bear from about 100 yards away. It was a very quick view as it was running pretty fast and disappeared far away from us onto the sea ice north of the Point.

We saw the polar bear that made this track from about 100 yards away before it ran far into the distance out on the sea ice at Point Barrow.
