Here's to Alaska and me

I was originally prompted to create this blog in order to document a recent excursion to the rugged expanse of snow and pre-settlement ecology that is our 49th state.  Of course, given that I was to be without electricity and internet access for seven weeks, any attempt to record the happenings of the tundra would have to be in retrospect. 

The next few posts will be my attempt to compose a rough timeline of my experiences in one of the most remote and unique wildernesses in North America, while studying its rarest and (arguably) most unique shorebird species.  The majority of the content will be consolidations from my notes in the field, supplemented by (mostly sub-par) photos and the occasional recording.
