Gifts for the Adventurous

Inspirations - Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve

To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most woderful countries in the world.
--John Muir



Gates of the Arctic National Park lies completely above the Arctic Circle.  There is no infrastructure or roads at all in the park.  So getting there is somewhat difficult, as you will see in the below documentary about one such adventure.

For more information on Gates of the Arctic National Park, check out the National Parks Service website.  



Best line from the documentary:  "Theres nothing like carrying a gun to the airport"

Some advice, watch this is the biggest possible format you can, its epic.

Watch it here and expand to full screen with the icon on the bottom right of the video frame.

Here is some gear you will need to tackle an adventure like this one.  Maybe not to Arctic National Park, but at least to a National Park near you.
