Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Burned ten years ago by the largest wildfire in the US in a ten-year span, nearly 2 million acre Taylor Complex (6,600,000 acres burned in the state of Alaska that year). Now being salvaged by small logging operations.

Tok likes beyond, where the Porcupine drainage enters the Tanana River. Mentasta Mountains lie across the horizon.

Thanks Joan, the trees (spruce) you see growing are those 'missed' by the fast-moving wildfire. This area is beginning re-growth of popple and birch, willows. The beginnings of the 300 year cycle here. Willows, popples and birch first, then in 50-150 years, the spruce will gradually take hold. When that spruce forest takes over, it will crowd out the hardwoods. Then.... another lightning wildfire will set that cycle in motion once again.

I'm very interested in the rejuvenation of forests. Wow - it looks so bare, but there are quite a few trees growing I see.

Excellent shot! "I can see for miles...and miles" (The Who)

About katy99780


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).
