$130.00

Spring comes late in the Chukchi Sea and breakup of the ice pack can come as late as June. I sketched this cluster of homes in Kotzebue in an area of town known as Busterville. Many people in Alaska wager on when the ice will officially "break". This is determined by a tripod-like instrument placed on the same spot of the frozen Nenana River every year. $5 Tickets are sold for the privilege of choosing an exact time when the ice breaks enough for the tripod to touch the water on a certain day. Winner takes all.
