A great perspective and a unique historic relic. There are musk oxen, flowers, berries and all sorts of neat rocks and birds on the way up.

If you're in Nome, rent or borrow a 4 wheeler and head on out here. Great little ride away from the city.

The White Alice site was a great place to visit and show kids what 1950's technology was used to protect America. At the time that I visited, they were undergoing shoring up and cleaning, to be available for others to show in the future.
