Explorer’s Journal #1 for National Geographic: Crossing that Bridge

Dennis Sinnok tracks a wolverine across the Alaskan tundra.

In this dispatch¬†for National Geographic’s Explorer’s Journal, Meet the North takes you to the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, a strip of land that has had a lasting impact on the north.


This area represents a much larger story of relationships between different Arctic people and how the north was settled. Though the landscape looks much different now than during the last ice age, themes of travel, interconnectedness, and land-based livelihoods still come through loud and clear.
