For those who have had their eyes on the weather in Alaska this autumn, it has been unusually wet in many regions. This has been true in the Brooks range area also and northward into the arctic coastal plains. The water soaked tundra is now freezing as the temps begin to drop. A light covering of snow covers this region of the tundra, and a few lone bull muskoxen were traveling across it while foraging for food. The Franklin Bluffs make a notable background–about the only geographic feature with relief in that country.
