The Arctic Looks Drop Dead Gorgeous in This Video

As you grow older, you start realizing that you might never get to see certain cities or visit some places around the world. Like, I’m fairly confident that I’ll never visit the Arctic. And, whatever, that’s okay, it’s too cold up there anyway. But my oh my, is it beautiful. It looks almost unreal—the white of the ice looks completely pristine and the structures just look untouched.


Just check out this video of Ben Brown’s trip to the Arctic. It’s so awesome that you don’t ever have to make the trek out there yourself.



I was stationed in Alaska for 5 years and saw some great views from the air while I was a Chinook crewmember. I saw Denali up close and the bus from Into the Wild. One of the coolest things was flying to the Arctic Circle as a morale flight so I could take my oath of reenlistment. We landed in a road next to a sign that said Arctic Circle. Really nothing to see, but I can say that I was there.
