The polygons are indescribable, but that's not going to stop me from trying to describe them. Imagine a vast landscape full of little islands. No, wait. Imagine a flat soccer ball where all of the seams are full of water. No, that doesn't do it either. Imagine... Aw, heck, just look at the link above and click here to see a bunch of other pictures that don't do the immensity of the polygon-ridden landscape justice.
At least I took some other pictures on the flight in and out. Here they are:
Closer to Old Crow. From the correct angle (not this one), these lakes looked like a beaver approaching a man's head.
There were thousands and thousands of these little lakes in the flats.
This hill really puzzles me. There are trees almost all around and then, for no reason that I can tell, there's a big lump with no vegetation.
A veiny drainage system.
I didn't get any pictures of the amazing polygons, but this "checkerboard" landscape is kind of cool. I wonder why it looks like that.
