A blogger who's been there...

I recently came across this blog by Mark York, a fisheries biologist who has worked in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He has a number of interesting posts about his experiences working there and the issues surrounding the refuge. Worth checking out.

Among other things, he has this to say: "Water is scarce in the arctic coastal plain. Essentially it's a desert, so there's not enough water available for ice roads hence the inevitability of gravel permanant roads going every which way all across the calving grounds."

Most of us haven't been to ANWR, and most of us (thank goodness) will never go. But it's nice to see someone weighing in who knows the ground.
