Description

Looking from the Kenai Peninsula across lower Cook Inlet to Mt. Iliamna, an active volcano on the Alaska Peninsula. It's ~45 mi (70 km) away. This is from Anchor Point, which is the westernmost point on the contiguous North American road system. How cool is that?

Description

Fireweed is Alaska's calendar. The flowers start opening at the bottom of the spike in spring & work their way up. When they reach the top, summer's over. Here you can see past, present, and future: seedpods at the bottom, flowers in the middle, and buds at the top.

Formerly known as Epilobium angustifolium, now reclassified as Chamerion.
