Arrigetch 'Fingers of the Outstretched Hand'
Arrigetch is from the Inupiat language meaning 'fingers of the outstretched hand.' These mountains are found in the Gates of the Arctic National Park, was a journey of a life time and no small feat . I had planned the visit for three years. The trip consisted of 4 barrels (bear proof) of freeze dried food, firearms, bear spray, bug spray, expedition gear, a plane ticket to get to Bettles, Alaska, and another plane ticket to be flown via float plane to Horseshoe Lake. The story behind capturing this image not only involves the journey to, but a journey home that has left an impression on my life that won't soon be forgotten.
Mountains seen in this photograph are (left to right) Elephants Tooth, Xanadu, Arial & Caliban.
