Seeing the option of four Tier I tags to be had in one camp, we started to make plans for our family of 5, both sets of grandparents, along with my cousin and her husband to hit the tundra and see if we could bag a 'bou.
I went in to setup camp on August 7th thinking we would be elbow to elbow with the other thousands of people with the same tag in their pocket. To our surprise, we didn't see anybody the entire trip...so that was a bonus. The 'clan' headed up on the 9th and I met them at the trail head and we headed in much later than expected (8pm starting a 2 hour wheeler ride is late for a 1 year old).
We saw barely a drizzle for roughly the first hour of our trek and from then on, not a drop fell from the sky for the 4 days we were there.
The boy ready to rumble...
Me and the oldest:
A beauty of a rainbow made the kids happy as we drove to camp
