I had the opportunity to go out into the field with the vole researchers at Toolik Field Station. They go out three times a day to check the status of the traps they have laid out over a grid.
We went looking for muskox and we were not disappointed. These guys were hanging out along the Dalton Highway, eating away at the grass and willows, totally unphased by us taking pictures and video of them from the road.
We landed. It's in the 80s, hot for this region. Two men, dressed in fatigues board the plane to check our passports.
The Toolik Field Station has some resident foxes that can be spotted regularly around camp.
