Barter Island - Cool Place

Barter Island is a very cool place.  Some unique things that happen here is that the lagoons and ocean freeze up and people can walk or snow machine on them.  That is very cool!

Every year some crews go boating out in the arctic ocean to catch whales.  Bowhead whales are very big and I think you would find them interesting to see.  They are also good to eat!  The ocean is very cold and polar bears travel here by swimming in it.  They like to be here during whaling season.

Some people go riding around with trucks down to the dump, over to the whale bones, or by the snow fences and sometimes see polar bears, brown bears, or foxes.  Wouldn't you find that interesting?  I know I do.
