It was hot, very hot as I hiked along the shore of Mendenhall Lake. How could this be? I'm in Alaska next to a glacier yet I feel like I'm in California! Even the wildflowers were brilliant, more so than I had remembered from my last trip to Alaska.
The dwarf fireweed called my artistic side to include these beautiful flowers with the glacier. I lowered my tripod until the glacier and flowers almost touched and the reflection of the lake, on such a calm day, doubled the image of the Mendenhall Glacier.
