Live and work Arctic on Alaska's Coastal Plain
Alaska's Arctic Coastal Plain during the winter reveals the undeniable power of the white season—a season that inspires awe and humility—a time when and a place where the most adaptable of humans, plants and animals sustain life. The brown season of spring in Alaska's Arctic is a short but welcome reminder that summer quickly approaches—a glimpse of brown through the white snow begins to animate a frozen landscape. Summer's green season rules supreme as life flourishes in 24-hour arctic sunlight—summer is a time of hurried excitement in a harrowing attempt to harness enough energy for the year's remaining nine months. The red season falls quickly on the tundra pulling a blanket of red over the land just weeks before a blanket of white covers Alaska's Arctic once again—fall is a time to lay the groundwork for a healthy sustainable year ahead. White, brown, green and red, the seasons of life in Alaska's Arctic makes it an icon of America's vast and distant wilderness. Alaska's North Coast is a place of simple splendor and passionate inspiration for those intrepid travelers who venture off-the-beaten-path.
