Monday in Alaska – Sept. 23

It’s another Monday and this week, it snowed. Multiple times, even! We got a snow on Wednesday, which was really spectacular since the trees hadn’t lost their leaves yet.

Most of that melted off. But it snowed again yesterday, and the effect is much the same — the trees are more yellow now and less green, but it’s still very striking with the golden backdrop under the snow. Here are a couple pictures I took yesterday evening on a walk out to the beaver pond near the house:

Today, it’s still cold enough that nothing has really melted, but the sun is very striking on the snow and yellow leaves! This first picture was taken from the deck. The one below it is looking down at the creek that runs through our property (the stairs in the foreground are an old set of wooden stairs off the deck that now lead to the creek bank).
