... after being blasted by the wind, icy nights when the northern lights are at their best as they dance in the sky, waterfalls frozen in place to become dramatic cascades of ice.

Spring is a beautiful season of new growth, colorful blooms, and fresh air, plus the spring melt - frozen rivers, waterfalls and snowfields release crystal clear water - a life blood of Alaska. As spring phases into summer the lush green pastures, scenic reflective lakes, and shiny coastal flats bath in the warmth of the summer sun.
