President Obama was seen taking a tour of the shoreline of Kotzebue, Alaska. This trip to Kotzebue made President Obama the first sitting president to go north of the Arctic Circle. Derek Martin showed the president Kotzebue Sound and explained the Kotzebue Shore Avenue Project, saying that it was a “permanent solution to a continual problem” of erosion from storm surges. President Obama also talked with John Baker, winner of the 2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The president was also introduced to Mr. Baker’s wife, daughters, and two puppies. President Obama put on a Team Baker hat and jacket and examined the sled used to win the race.
