Caribou Drop Camp Hunt and Driving The Dalton Highway (2008)
On August 2, 2008 I met my twin sons Adam and Dan in Fairbanks, Alaska. I had driven 3200 miles from our home in east-central South Dakota. Dan, whose summer job was a civil engineering internship with the Indian Health Service, drove up from Anchorage. Adam flew in from Grand Forks, North Dakota where he was attending summer school at the University of North Dakota in their commercial aviation program. We purchased supplies and drove up the Dalton Highway (locally known as the "Haul Road") 500 miles to Deadhorse, Alaska. From there we hired an air taxi to fly us out to the base of the Brooks Range where we hunted Caribou for 4 days walking over 33 miles hunting and packing caribou back to our camp. Below is a picture log of that adventure.
