lots of ground squirrel up there?
Hi ejneuman, is this photo taken from exactly where your marker is on Google Earth? If so, do you have other photos of this area? This appears to be an upper tributary of the Rat River. Did you notice any fish present in the creek? I am the fisheries biologist for the Gwich'in Renewable Resources Board and we are currently planning a fisheries inventory of this watershed, including I believe, the tributary in your photo. Please email me at kmaier (at) grrb.nt.ca
A fine gallery! Like. Regards from Norway, Ian
