I already formally introduced Brevig Mission to TAT readers, but it’s time to get to know Brevig Mission even better.
Brevig Mission is marked on the Google Map above. It’s on the Seward Peninsula, about 80 miles north of Nome, 586 miles northwest of Anchorage, and 65 miles south of Shishmaref.
There are no roads to Brevig Mission. You can only only fly in. Well, that’s not exactly true. In the summer you can drive the road from Nome to Teller and boat from Teller to Brevig. In the winter, you can snow machine across the ice from Teller (it takes about 20 minutes to go the 6 miles, but it’s a cold 20 minutes). Most people and cargo go the plane route.
