The Equivalent of a Few Thousand Words

Two aspens in my yard.  Remember to click to enlarge.  This was two weeks ago.

A week ago.
My favorite birch tree.  I've been watching it through my kitchen window since it was a sapling.  It's always the brightest birch in the neighborhood.

Mountain Ash in Anchorage.
Across the highway.

Mountain goats are basking in an afternoon sun.  You might have to click to enlarge this pix to see them.

All the following were taken in the Silvertip/Turnagain Pass area where I was picking up litter on an overcast day.


  1. What brand of paint do they use up there to redecorate all that scenery?

  2. Natura brand earth colors.


  3. The fall colored aspen, ash, birch and mountains are breathtaking.

  4. pictures and colors are beautiful.
    and u'r right, words would not do it justice.
    (but we do have a lot more white stuff)

  5. aaaahhhhh! I remember feeling such a sense of relief at the end of each summer-I never realized just how GREEN everything was, til it started to change! I love the way your words and pictures bring it all back to me!
