My first solo ride on a snow machine from a village. I followed the principal out to Napaskiak in the morning. Napaskiak is about 5 miles down river from Bethel. We dissected pike as an activity for culture week. I pointed out organs and how to age fish by scales. I also learned how to cut pike the Yupik way for drying. It was good to visit with elders too.
The trails are really nicely packed now. You can go almost anywhere in the tundra. The elders bet it’s going to be a late break up. It was -4 most of the day. A colder April than we are used to.
