Fall Colors Despite the Lack of Trees

You might think that since we lack trees here at latitude 65 that we also loose out on all the amazing colors of fall time. The tundra, however, is alive with color this time of year and I adore it! True, there isn't a towering maple waving it's autumn foliage over my head but the mini forest with it's explosion of color is equally inspiring.

It's hard to believe that less than four weeks ago I took the tundra flower photos, complete with irises. Time apparently moves along at warp speed in the far north.

And last but not least, a stunning fall morning sunrise.

Met you down by the water during the Arctic Care visit. I was really taken by Alaska and the lifestyle at Brevig. Thanks for the Blog, I look forward to checking in on Brevig! That was quite the grocery bill.
