Ground Truth Trekking

Skeletal bear paw

One of three brown bear carcasses we found along the Chukchi Shore.

This summer we walked and packrafted 300 miles from Cape Lisburne to Kotzebue, and skeletal remains were ubiquitous. This collection of photos is mostly from that trip, but includes a few older shots as well.

Also I wanted to apologize to anyone who was offended by grave photos in this slideshow... those have now been removed! In hindsight, putting a picture of a grave next to "Happy Halloween" was inappropriate, and I'm very sorry I did that.
