Barrow, Alaska has the distinction of being the farthest North of all North American cities. It is also the port from which the scientists will board the USCSC Healy.
It is approximately 725 miles from Anchorage, Alaska to Barrow, Alaska. There is no train, bus or car route to Barrow – it is only accessible by air or boat. Yesterday, the scientific team flew into Anchorage and boarded another plane to fly into Barrow.
