STAGES V & VI - THE BROOKS RANGE and THE ARCTIC OCEAN - AK - 500 miles
2011 and 2012: The final push! In the spring, I will snowshoe and cross country ski to the top the Brooks Range near Atigun Pass. In the summer, I will return to traverse the peaks of the Gates of the Arctic NP and connect with a tributary of the Colville River at the village of Anaktuvuk Pass. This tributary is part of the Colville River drainage and flows down the north slope of the Brooks Range to Alaska's Arctic coast. The Colville river meets the Arctic Ocean near Oliktok Point about 40 miles west of Prudhoe Bay.
