The first thing I noticed as our plane made its descent into Anchorage (besides the ring of mountains!) was the deep shades of green dotting the landscape. With most of the country suffering a severe drought this summer it’s fantastic to come to Alaska and see gorgeous pops of color at every turn. Nanook and I took a stroll downtown this afternoon and I can’t resist sharing a few snaps.
And since Alaska summers are filled with lots of daylight, plants, flowers and vegetables grow to gargantuan proportions! Next week we are heading to the Alaska State Fair in Palmer to check out the annual Giant Cabbage Weigh-Off where any veggie under 125 lbs. is considered puny!
