Alaska is an incredible land, full of beauty beyond description and people as unique as the land itself. Check out my books about "Becoming Alaskan" and "Backstage Iditarod" at Amazon.com Click on the links to view and/or order.
Norma and I were talking about the fireweed and how it's ever evolving this time of year, so asked her to take and share a few photos from Skwentna. You can see that they're getting the white fluff there.
Cropped this outta the photo above and enlarged a bit to show the "fluff" more clearly.
What's left of the daisy patches.
Norma has clover, too. I've had tons of it this year here in Wasilla. It smells soooooo good.
