With all of this great birding and excitement one would think there is no time to rest. Not so, here guide Jan Pierson takes a well-deserved break beneath one of the palm trees of Barrow. Well-deserved because it may be 3 AM—remember that here the sun does not set in summer. Twenty-four hours of daylight has its challenges, but it is a unique experience. If you are still thinking about the palms in Barrow and don't believe me, well, take the tour and see.
