The answer to the trivia question from August 9th about a favorite outdoor activity is Blueberry Harvesting. Blueberries are native to this part of Alaska and usually about the middle of August, the fruit is ripe and ready for picking.
Autumn came a little early this year, with clear, chilly weather and a beautiful color display. Cottonwoods, willows, dwarf birch and blueberry bushes create a variety of vibrant yellows, oranges and reds. Pictures just cannot capture the beauty. You’ll just have to visit next August and see for yourself.
