I remember growing up in Nome as a kid and having open space to ride my snowmobile. We'd go fishing in the summer time to Council which is 75 miles NE of Nome accessible by dirt road maintained only in the summer time. And I'd go and drill holes in the ocean to catch King Crab. March is a time for the World Famous Iditarod Dog Sled Race which is 1049 miles and takes a musher 9 days to finish. The winters are long and cold, but the summer time months make up for it, long daylight hours and plenty of wildlife to see, Reindeer, Muskox, Moose, fox, wolves, Salmon and berries are plentiful.Nome
