"Arctic camp 2008...salmon darkened the waters near shore, bears walking by fat with their take, reindeer in numbers following the trails of migrating caribou as the wolves sound the valley with their songs.  Morning coffee dripping through an antique coffee pot found in an old trapper's cabin.  Trout running under the boat in clear melt water rising to ripples in the wake of our passing."  "A mammoth tusk in the gravel marking the trail where once they numbered in the millions"
