Nome? Why? This is the response we usually receive when asking about traveling to this all but forgotten corner of Alaska. This is where the land bridge was between Asia and North America, and the first humans to see this land were the first Native Americans to cross that bridge, more than 13,000-years ago. Living relics from those prehistoric times still roam the tundra here. This is one of the best places on the planet to photograph musk ox, and they’ll have newborn calves when we’re there. The region is also a paradise for bird photographers. Shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors, ptarmigan all trying to make the most of the short growing season. Even owls are active in the daytime because the nights are so short.

You can’t drive to Nome. You have to fly to get there, but there are a couple hundred drivable miles divided between 3 roads that lead out of town. We’ll be exploring all of those roads, for they all have photographic treasures just waiting for adventurous photographers.
