Termination Dust, Alaska

“Autumn is more a season of the soul than of nature.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

I had so many good intentions about documenting my adventures this year in the Arctic:

Months without sunrise or sunset.

The first fireweed flower of the season.

The scares of wildfires abound.

Floating through the Gates of the Arctic.

Climbing Mt. Dillon.

Where did it all go? Well, there were so many thrilling moments this summer, I found just enough time to breathe, eat, and occasionally sleep.

Hope your summer was a great one.

Officially we are still having fall, although winter is knocking heavily on its doors in some places of North America.

How does your soul feel about the impending transition?

  1. I was taking termination dust photos myself the other day. Autumn is here and the smoke from the fires is gone, finally, though while driving the Anchorage recently, you can still smell it thickly in the air while passing miles of burned forest.

    I hope this winter you’ll be able to reminisce a little about your time this summer. I always enjoy your posts immensely.

  2. No “impending transition” here in Texas
    went to be 90 degrees
    woke up 50’s
    I so miss the intense color changes along the Dalton
    and the sometimes seemingly endless
    first snow fall

    you are indeed blessed…
    enjoy every minute
    because you never know when there will be no more minutes left.

    • You got that right. I am coming to the conclusion that life in the Arctic is intense, hard, and real. Comes a time in many men’s time, when we choose to live in a more comfortable environment…
