Shore Ice

Open water is now visible just about 1 mile outside of Nome. With changing tides, a huge lead has opened up between the shore ice and the moving ice pack. Few creatures venture to this extreme edge. The exception is a lone fox, whose tracks bear witness of his passage. Out in the ocean, I saw a couple of seals taking advantage of the lead as their head popped up through the glassy surface to catch their breath.
