494-Going to Barrow, AK

I had the opportunity to visit Barrow, AK to teach a course in “How to Start a Business” at the local community college. Barrow is the farthest incorporated city in North America and is literally at the top of the world. The local people of Barrow were some of the nicest I have met in Alaska. The adventure of going to a whaling community and maybe seeing polar bears was very exciting. Unfortunately, the bears would not be out for a couple more weeks. The temperature was way below zero but I came prepared and only my feet froze. As usual, I fell into fun adventures and as always had my camera with me. Here is the start of my “Top of the World” adventure.
