The west flank of Dry Creek leads to the Nome Cemetery on a small rounded hill. The narrow cemetery roads cross tundra and willow shrub habitats that dominate the area due to the slight rise in elevation. While being respectful of the grave markers, search for northern shrike, bohemian waxwing, or black-capped chickadee and enjoy the common tundra bird species as well. Don’t be surprised if an eastern yellow wagtail flying overhead escorts you through the area.
