In a week the temperature went up almost 80 degrees, so yesterday we decided to go for a snowmobile ride to Kobuk. It’s only about 10-12 miles and with the warmer temperatures, it felt almost tropical (but we still bundled up some).
It was a good day for a ride–sunny and warm. The trail goes through tundra and woods, crosses some creeks and lakes, and then drops down to the Kobuk River for the final mile or two. We had a great visit with the principal-teacher, a former student, and a current student who was extra helpful. Nice.
