    This is a very cool place, kind of like being in the middle of nowhere. You can drive all of the way to the end and then hike around the various spots to observe the plants and formations.  more »

    We parked at the edge of the reserve although a 4X4 can drive onto the reserve. A windy barren land with great views from the top. In September there were not many birds.  more »

    Very barren and unique arctic landscape. Would go with a guide, as there are no trails and no signage. Lots of neat little flowers that will be researched later. Cool rock formations...if you know how to find them and where to walk (there are some high cliffs).
