Picture was taken early in the trip, looking up Buster Creek.
Ramon was the cameraman, and does not show in the picture. That
Eric never took his helmet off for any reason whatsoever.
The Grand Canyon of the Flambeau is aproximately 20 miles ENE of
Nome. It is very picturesque. Snow conditions were perfect, firm
and deep. No issues of any kind were experienced on the way out.
Halfway back clouds moved in, the sunshine went away, and it became
flat-light travel. This is dangerous: You cannot see holes and
cliffs and we had to proceed very slowly and carefully. But we
made it to Nome without mishap.
