"This photo was when I was in Deering, Alaska in 1980 at which time I was in expedition for five months, from May until October, I was unable to leave this region easily, it was more like home than anywhere else. As I was leaving for Kotzebue from the mouth of the Buckland River in early October, it began to snow, I decided the summer was over and camping would then become more challenging. I suffered culture 'shock' when I finally arrived in Fairbanks with all of the commerce and traffic, an alien landscape. The natives remain there, in Deering and Buckland, friendly and wondering why I packed it in and left. I returned the following summer and continued further...north."
