Description: This is a picture of the local radio station, KBRW. I was supposed to contact the local radio host here for a possible interview about the research cruise, but the time just didn’t work out for that. This picture is the only visual reminder of me wondering if I have missed out on a fleeting chance at fame and fortune biggrin.gif

Description: This is the view to the left of the road from which the previous picture of the high school and elementary school was taken. This was one of the several lagoons in the Barrow area

Description: As I continued my tour around Barrow, this was a view from the road I was on, looking back to the high school (on right). To the left, in the background with the same color scheme as the high school, is the Barrow’s elementary school

Description: Being a high school teacher, I was told I should check out the Barrow High School. I didn’t get a chance to go inside, but it was impressive even from the outside. It is a state-of-the-art high school, complete with a swimming pool that is also available for community use. Also note, as with most buildings in a permafrost area, the building is on stilts. An orange natural gas pipeline (foreground) is also above ground. Stilts and above ground utilities prevent both melting of the permafrost and damage to utilities.

Description: This is one of the four engraved sides of the granite pedestal that supports the top of the memorial shown in the previous picture. If have trouble reading it, it reads, “Dedicated August 15, 1982 in memory of Will Rogers and Wiley Post. Searching for the top of the world, they lost their lives August 15, 1935 when Post’s unnamed experimental plane crashed just 16 miles short of their destination. From this spot in Barrow, Alaska, their bodies were flown back home for burial. Their spirits keep winging onward!”

And On Your Left Is…

Description: Since I took a picture of the directional sign that was next to the Will Rogers/Wiley Post Memorial, I thought I should probably take a picture of the….Will Rogers/Wiley Post Memorial! This is the top of the memorial

Description: This was a directional/mileage sign next to the Will Rogers/Wiley Post Memorial. It was interesting to me that here in Barrow, you are closer to places like Norway than you are to many places in the United States

Yes, I AM a Tourist

Description: I’m not positive, but I would think if the residents of Barrow saw me take this picture, they likely had the same reaction you might have is someone came to your town and took a picture of say….the local garbage collection truck? It might be something like, “WHY is he taking a picture of THAT? What a tourist….And a strange one at that smile.gif !” Yes, they might take what’s shown here for granted, but for me, this was a unique thing: This is a water truck that is used to wet down the roads. Since Barrow is very dry, and the roads mostly gravel and dust, this procedure helps keep the dust under control. I couldn’t help but wonder, though….Doesn’t it also add to the mud seen all over the cars??

Description: I don’t know if it was its simplicity, the unique way of proving I was here, or what, but I found the sign on the FAA building to be interesting
