Aerial photo of the Brooks Range taken last week. The Brooks Range is the  northernmost extension of the Rocky Mountains in northern Alaska. Named for the geologist Alfred H. Brooks, the entire range is north of the Arctic Circle. The Brooks Range extends about 600 miles (1,000 km) in an east-west direction across Alaska from the U.S. border with Canada’s Yukon territory to the Chukchi Sea, and it reaches widths of up to 200 miles (300 km).
