I am taking a van-load of scientists to Toolik Lake in the morning. It will be the furthest north I've yet been (68.38 N.) Toolik is a UAF research station perched in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range. Two winters ago, I nearly adopted a sled dog named Toolik. He lives with a dog team east of town now, but I'll get to see his namesake tomorrow under the midnight sun on the arctic coastal plain.
