Warm sun washes over America’s least visited national park: Kobuk Valley in the northwest Arctic. It’s not at all as you might expect it — at least I expected a more wintered environment — but in the summer, the sun shines down just as it does in most of our parks, warming animal, ecological, and wilderness environments. 1.7 million acres are protected by the @nationalparkservice - in that space, enormous populations of birds, fish, and other wildlife typical to the area thrive. It’s also a thoroughfare for the Western Arctic Caribou Herd who depends on the undeveloped character, vastness and natural resources of Kobuk Valley National Park to survive. So, even though most people will never see this place, I wanted to share a bit about what makes it so special to our planet and to native Alaskans who still live subsistence lifestyle in the area.
