Deadhorse Vistor Services Summer 2008

To all,
Not long got back from Prudhoe / Deadhorse and picked up this flyer from the visitor centre at Coldfoot. It helped me out a great deal with planning.
Couldn't find a link to the info so I typed it out and posted it. Hope it helps out someone else. I would recommend the Prudhoe Bay Hotel to stay at.
Regards Ben.
