I guess the name for our blog is not very original.

Fireweed blooms all over Alaska in mid-summer and, after blooming, its leaves
turn a fiery red. Hence, the name Fireweed. It seems that every town in
Alaska has a street or building named after this beautiful flower.
|Independence Gold Mine.|
The gold mine is visible in the valley below.
|Denali from Willow, AK.|
The rain caused a lot of flooding in
the national park that day; but at 20,310 feet
Denali managed to poke its head through the rain clouds.
|Maybe we need to create the "moose party"|
and get rid of the elephants and donkeys.
Next--The Great One--Denali!!!
