I’m home again after a nine-day road trip from Anchorage, Alaska, to Prudhoe Bay on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. It was an extraordinary journey beyond civilization, during the time of the midnight sign, on “the last and loneliest road”:http://wikitravel.org/en/Dalton_Highway that doesn’t stop until the end of the world.
I need a day or so to re-acquaint myself with the land of life, darkness, and warmth.
Thanks to Howard Baskerville for keeping the blog going while I was off the grid. I have two dispatches from Iraq to knock out before they’re out of date. Then I’ll publish a photo-rich travel essay from the end of the earth.
