Mysteries of the Arctic

This photo was taken by Joe several years ago in Alaska’s arctic at a place called Black Dog Creek.  As legend would have it, the geologist who named the creek called it Black Dog Creek because they had seen a black wolf there. 

An alternative explanation for why this creek is dubbed “Black Dog” lies in the cliffs adjacent to the creek.  Look closely…can you see the black dog?

Tomorrow, we’ll post an annotated photo so we can make sure we’re all seeing the same thing!
