Finally back in New York after another eventful Alaskan summer. The commercial fishing season in Bristol Bay went well, though of course there were the usual surprises, both good and bad; and my further reporting around the issue of the proposed Pebble Mine went well also, with the highlight being the peer review of the EPA's Bristol Bay Watershed assessment in Anchorage in early August. (See this Anchorage Daily News article for a recap of that.)
A fishing season full of long work days and little sleep, followed by a non-stop three week reporting marathon, has left me somewhat depleted, so it may take me a little while to get my feet back on the ground, crawl out from under the mountain of emails that accumulated in my absence, and deal with the sweat-inducing humidity of late-summer in New York. But eventually, once I begin sorting through this summer's reporting, I'll be posting more here.
