tundra is beautiful

Ahhhhhhh, isn't it lovely. 

A couple of weeks ago, while my parents were still here we drove down to Denali National Park. And while we did not see mount McKinley, we did see lots of beautiful scenery and the tundra was in fine form. I never thought of tundra being so pretty but it is - especially in the fall when the plants change all sorts of pretty colors. 

Here's a close up of the fireweed. 

Meanwhile, fall is here in Fairbanks. The days are getting shorter and the leaves have all turned. I sense that winter is on its way, so I best live up this lovely weather and scenery while it lasts.
