“Our four seater plane touched down on a small gravel bar in the heart of the Brooks Range. We unloaded. The engine roared back to life, and the plane disappeared down valley into the blue-gray mountains. Then, the mosquitoes came,” writes Fitz Cahall. In May, Fitz received an email that contained a golden ticket–a float trip down the Kongakut River through the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with the Sierra Club. His role: to film and photograph the trip as part of a campaign to permanently protect the Refuge. There was just one problem: the timeline collided with prior commitments to family and friends. How one email, one trip, and one decision to say yes crystallized Fitz’s commitment to responsibility and desire.
