Brief Directions
Drive north out of Fairbanks 500 miles to Prudhoe Bay. Gravel road, very remote, used by heavy trucks to haul freight to the oilfields of Alaska. Gas at the Yukon River, Coldfoot and in Deadhorse Alaska. Bring extra tires, food and warm clothing. Weather can change at a moments notice and it can snow during summer months. Access to the Arctic Ocean is only via tour bus when you reach Deadhorse. Wolves, grizzly bears, musk oxen, arctic and red fox, and caribou can be seen on the way up to Prudhoe Bay.
A young female fox was hunting in the tall grasses of a kettle pond in Prudhoe Bay Alaska. She tried catching a lemming in the grasses for about 15 minutes, unsuccessful each time. Her determination never waned as she leaped into the air, her eyes fixated on her prey below the grassline.
