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).

Caption: Always a pretty place in winter, where the (relatively) 'warm' waters of this crick remain unfrozen, no matter if the thermometer tells us that all water should be frozen. Warm springs higher up the mountain keep this waterway open, and keep everything close by covered with frosty white.
