Ungalik, Nome, Alaska, United States – Geography Series

This post is part of the Geography Series (13th post).

Ungalik is a village in Alaska, United States (North America). It is placed in the Nome Census Area, which has a population of less than 10000 people. As Wikipedia mentions Nome Census Area "is part of the ungorganized borough and therefore has no borough seat."

The Ungalik Airstrip Drum Spill Site is, as stated in the linked article, "at an abandoned/unusable landing strip on a saddle between unnamed hilltops north of the Ungalik River, about 4 miles inland from the east end of Norton Sound."

Some Siberian Husky dogs (seen in the picture) are named from the region of Ungalik.
