John Burroughs and Charles Keeler roamed the tundra, surprised to be plagued by bumblebees and mosquitoes so close to the Arctic Circle. Burroughs experienced the common loss of depth perception caused by the tundra landscape and walked for hours in an attempt to reach a hill that was, most likely, a good thirty miles away.
