Dalton Hwy, Alaska – River bath in the Arctic

Our overnight spot on an island in the middle of a river (it was shallow enough to drive through) guarantees not only exclusivity; we like it so much to decide staying one more day here. We want to save water for showering and go bathing in the river instead. We didn’t cross the Arctic Circle yet, so we are swimming in an Arctic river! The water is warmer than expected; my thermometer shows nearly 14°C, cosy for Arctic temperatures. Anyway, who ever bathed in such cold water knows what I’m talking about…
