Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: It's hard to imagine that water is percolating up and out of the mountainside, after temps down to -60, but there it is. Oozing and glaciering out of the permaftost.

Thanks for stopping by Susan, Charlotte and Dave.

Yes Dave there is quite a bit of geothermal stuff going on in many places of Alaska. Don't really know if this is heat generated in this instance, or if it is upwelling of a cold spring.

There is so much permafrost in my area, and ground water cannot percolate, and the actions and reactions between those forces is ... pretty interesting.

This kind of glacier/upwelling is common in my area.

Is there some sort of geothermic activity underground?

I guess you really have to be careful where you are walking now.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
