Ptarmigan Pass is located on the Kenai Peninsula
It's about an hours drive from Anchorage
It amazes me that the flowers are already blooming even
though there is still a lot of snow lying about.
Beautiful fields of tiny little yellow flowers
are dotting the pass.
Everywhere you look you
can see new
shoots pushing up!
They are in a hurry...
the summers are short!
I even spotted a lupine!!
for this flower to be blooming!
At the bottom of the pass
there is a magnificent view of snow capped mountains and glaciers.
I love this spot.
The water lilies are emerging as well.
This is a favorite water resting spot for swans and ducks that are in migration.
Before the 1964 earthquake this area had a multitude of tall trees.
Happy summer to you all!
