We have a couple signs that fall is here in Alaska – it gets colder, the leaves turn, the fireweed flowers finish blooming, and we get termination dust on the mountains. It’s called that because it’s the termination of summer. For the summer, we don’t have snow on the peaks we can see in Anchorage – when you can see snow again, winter is coming soon. We actually got termination dust a couple weeks ago, but I have been in denial.
I got this photo on our way into work on Friday (I wasn’t driving). That’s definitely snow. And here’s the other sign
The majority of the trees we have here are birches, so we don’t get different colors of autumn leaves, by and large. We get gold, which is also pretty!
I can’t deny it any more, fall is falling. How about where you are?
