Bettles Airport, Alaska 1952.
Photo of Carl Langton, son of Bettles Communications Chief, Jim Langton and
wife, Helen. Notice the handmade snow shoes. They are larger than
made snow shoes and the caribou sinew webbing is much finer. These larger
shoes provide greater floatation in powdered snow and are lightweight.
