The wife and I decided to do a fly-in hunt into the Brooks Range and float out to the Dalton Hwy. We were after Grizzly and Caribou, and some adventure. We loaded up all our gear and six hunters and headed up the haul road. We had to stop at the Hill Top and get a good meal. Itís part of the experience. Our next stop was at the Yukon River Bridge; we got gas and enjoyed some conversation with the local saleswoman.
Then onto the Arctic Circle stop had to do the picture thing. Then onto cold foot for gas and more good food. We had a cabin rented for the night in Wiseman at the Arctic Circle Inn, wow what a place, the wife really enjoyed it and breakfast was great. This made the trip for the wife.
Logistics had us hauling one Beaver load and 4 people from Dead
horse and the other 2 and gear from Happy Valley. So, off to Dead horse we go. We stayed the night at Prudhoe Bay, there are a couple hotels and one includes meals so show around. It was raining and we did not want to pack wet gear and we would have had to camp back out along the road with the bears that were know to be around. After the wife saw that hotel it was.
