Bering Sea

I had to miss UAA Ski Team practice yesterday so I could fly out to Unalaska in the Aleutian Islands.  All the cold air that is absent from the Lower 48 this winter must have come to Alaska.  In fourteen years of travels around the Bering Sea region, I've never seen so much sea ice as is out there now.  If you're thinking of taking a ski trip across theBering Sea ice from Alaska to Siberia, this is the year to do it:

Unalaska Island:

Chigmit Mountains:

My mobile office.  I get more work done here than anywhere else.
