Gallery: The Journey to Nome, From the Deck of the Healy
These images come from a camera mounted atop the icebreaker Healy on its trek through the frozen sea. The Healy is clearing a path for a Russian tanker carrying 1.3 millions gallons of desperately-needed fuel to Nome, Alaska. For the full story, see "Russian Tanker Within 100 Miles of Nome".
