Whew! Things have really been crazy since school started three weeks ago and nothing has been hit harder by the whirlwind of renewed activity than this blog. So, while there are plenty of things to share, there is very little time to share it.
I am completely in awe of FC over at Pure Florida in that he somehow manages post interesting things almost daily in spite of his hectic school schedule and personal commitments. Kudos to you, FC! I'm just not there yet, but you are definitely my blogging inspiration!
While I have a few short minutes, I thought I'd offer up some photos of a fossilized Woolly Mammoth tusk recently discovered on the tundra by a local hunter here in Atqasuk. It's not an uncommon thing to find tusks up here, but this one is quite a bit larger than others that have surfaced.
This thing weighs about sixty pounds and is probably more than 4000 years old! Pretty amazing, huh?
It kind of redefines that old expression of being "long in the tooth!"
