New pictures!


Elder Woolbert was able to take many pictures of the Northern lights (Aurora borealis).





 



This is the little plane Elder Woolbert took to the little village outside of Fairbanks!


 
Elder Woolbert was actually able to fall asleep on that tiny plane! It looks like it was cold.
 
 

 
This picture was taken when Elder Woolbert was serving in Fairbanks. His face has been burnt from the cold wind and his eyelashes froze.
 
 
 
This picture was taken in Fairbanks. Part of the Alaska pipeline can be seen. This is one of the pigs that used to go in the pipeline. Now you wonder, where does the pig come into this story? Somehow, the pipelines have to be kept clean because of the oil residue that accumulates during the time oil travels from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, and it would be too dangerous for people to climb into the 4-foot wide pipes that course through the heart of Alaska. Enter "the Pigs". These are huge drill-like devices that are sent through to perform maintenance along The Pipeline on a regular basis and perform many other functions as well.
