Spent the weekend at Glatfelder Cabin on Quartz Lake.  This is an old homesteader’s cabin that is now owned by the State and can be rented by individuals.

Barrow, AK 1/30/10

Had to take a trip to Barrow on Saturday 1/30.  The most depressing and desolate place I’ve ever been.  The culture of the Inupiat people is fascinating, though.  I was there to MC the new Postmaster’s Installation Ceremony.  It was held at the Inupiat Hertiage Center.  The village of Barrow has close to 5000 residents and is roughly 75% Inupiat.  The people still live a somewhat subsistense lifestyle and hunt whales, seals, walruses, polar bears, etc.  Check out http://www.nps.gov/inup/index.htm .  Barrow is the northernmost city in North America.
