It's a 'company town', with enough stores, restaurants and accomodations to satisfy the simple traveler.

You won't find the charm of Nome, Juneau or Homer... but you will be at the farthest North city in America!!

    The Arctic Ocean looks a bit more yellow than I would have thought?

    Hey, great Barrow pages. I never make it up there, but you did. I like all your Alaska pages. Any plans to go there again soon? Take care and fly! :)

    hmm...I should have been in Alaska by now. I really want to get up to Barrow--I'm jealous you've been there. Good stuff.

    An interesting destination. I never knew that about airport runways.

    Inhospitable looking and plain to the eye, but still I want to see this place.
