This is one of my favorites from this past summer. Taken at an elevation of about 1750 feet looking east through Caribou Pass towards Canada. Over the ridge to the left was a view of the Arctic Ocean and to the right was a view of the Kongakut River valley. Photographed in the foreground is Arctic Phlox along with a variety of other arctic wildflowers.
