... on the way from Serpentine Hot Springs to Shishmarev Island I spotted a herd of animals.
I got a bit closer. Muskoxen! First I thought they are totally indifferent they didn't run and they didn't move much. But when I looked closer at the picture and read a bit about them I see they are in a defensive position. They just don't know where this whistling is coming from...
Shishmarev Island was just for the logbook. I "collect" islands visited. This island has a huge airport and they are expanding it even more. Nothing is listed as an attraction here and I don't know anybody. In-n-out.
Next waypoint was Little Diomede a tiny island in Bering Strait a fraction of a mile from Russian border.
This is the Little Diomede to my right.
To my left is Ratmanova Island there is a cross on top of the island. Farther away you can see Dezhneva Cape and Uelen on continental Russia. Now I can brag I've been in Sarah Palin's backyard can I get another free beer?
I wondered around the island a bit quite an interesting place. There are emergency landing sites all over you can even plop it on top of the arctic mesa if motor quits.
I crossed Bering Strait eastbound then flew by Tin City LRSS.
That thing has some power.
