Claude,
My favorite camp site of all time was in the Brooks range. I fell asleep with my head outside the tent watching the Northern Lights. In the morning I woke to a horrible smell. When I looked outside the tent I was surrounded by a herd of Musk Ox. Awesome beyond description..........

The musk ox I saw where further North, near Deadhorse. I haven't see any in the Brooks Range. But I saw several bears there, even one who looked interested by my camp..!

Great Images Claude!

I cannot believe I have missed this thread until today.
While I take it that you were roaming all over the place, is there any chance you could give us your general route? Amazing locations and great photography as well!

Thank You!

Re: VivaLaVida in Alaska [updated page 6, 02/23/15]

Skyrat and others, you can find Claude's blog of this travels at 'instants-choisis.ch/blog/'. He has a map of his travels on his blog.
I've been following his travels and images since last summer. I took the time to catch up with his blog since I was almost a year late knowing about it. You can sign up with the blog and you'll get an e-mail alerting you when he updates it.

Great images throughout his trip!

Mike
