Happy Birthday to ANWR


Today December 6, 2010  marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. As I posted in an earlier blog entry my visit there this past  Summer  with  my friend Carl Donohue of Alaskan Alpine Treks had a profound effect on me. Bluntly stated, it needs to be preserved and remain untouched by oil and gas extraction.  It would be wonderful if President Obama would make ANWR a National Monument. It certainly deserves it.  It truly is a special place. I have  include a few more images, and  if you would like to see more  you can go to my ANWR Gallery on Photoshelter.
