Photographer's Note

Our only stop this morning before our arrival in Anchorage was the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center located in Portage, Alaska. AWCC is a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, education, research and quality animal care. "Despite their name, muskox are members of the goat family. They’re an ancient species of arctic mammal with a thick outer coat consisting of long (up to 36 inches) guard hairs that cover a dense underfur known as qiviut. Qiviut is considered to be one of the warmest materials in the world." Previous text from the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center website:
