This is a piece of drilling equipment at Deadhorse.  It looks like a ship with wheels for moving across the tussock tundra.
Could it be the same Radio Flyer that makes little red wagons?
Friction of the moving crude oil creates heat that would interfere with normal conditions of the tundra, so where over permafrosted ground the pipeline is equipped with columns of ammonia gas circulating, and these fins, to dissipate heat.
A beautiful view of this mountain is seen just north of Coldfoot, Ak.
Known as patterned ground, soggy soil above permafrost will take on these bizarre shapes due to frost wedging.  They look really neat from the air.

Three square (and gourmet) meals are consumed here.  Researchers are known to gain what is referred to as the "Toolik Twenty"  Maybe it's good I'm only here for 2 weeks!
The kitchen staff is very talented.
Franklin Bluffs are the last bit of elevated topography, cut by the Sag River, on the way to Deadhorse.
Shedding coats of the caribou are perfectly camouflaged with the tundra.  Notice the huge antlers on some of the males.
