Spectacular nature of Alaska in spring

Posted on: October 8, 2012


Spring has sprung across the nation.  While warmer climes are cause for celebration in every corner of the country, in Alaska, spring is particularly meaningful.

It means the return of daylight to northern areas of the state that experience perpetual darkness in the wintertime.  It’s also a time when Alaska goes through a remarkable transformation from white to green; all while native species emerge from their winter hibernation.

Words only go so far in describing the beauty of spring time in Alaska, so we’ll let the images do the talking.  Here’s a closer look at this wonderful time to visit The Last Frontier.
