Saturday Walk

Birch leaves opening

Just now the birch leaves are starting to open in Fairbanks. Many of the willows and alders are still barren near us, only a few of the smaller ones are starting to bud and leaf. Green grasses and ground-cover are just starting to push through the brown carpet outside. Some rain sure would be nice to help everything green-up a bit more. It would also help control the coming wildfire season.

Turning green

Kate and I took Moose for a nice walk on Saturday and enjoyed the cool, refreshing air at Chena Lake after a busy few weeks. I’m back from my trip (which I will hopefully post about soon) and Kate finished all her finals and projects and is down to her last week of work before the summer.

Dense birch
I love how much birch there is here. Whole forests of white bark.

Green on the Chena
Summer is coming, maybe.
