On the east side of the lake I must have also been an unusual sight to a loon out on the lake. He yelled at me until I was completely out of sight! I saw a few tiny phalaropes spinning around on the water and flying quickly by me as I passed along the road. It was a wonderful day to absorb some sun and enjoy a fix of the great outdoors.
The road was nice and dry finally. Although there is some pretty deep standing water along the driveways as I left the Prudhoe Bay Hotel. It may be a while before that disappears.
