    The best berries in the world almost ripe. Cloud berries.



    Close up of a bog orchid.



    Some D. rotundifolia



    A immature Bufo boreas



    A little island of muskeg that somehow formed in a piece of plywood.



    It's got everything you'd need! Including more D. rotundifolia.



    A bloom of the delicious and elusive bog blueberry.



    Muskeg











    A juvenile eagle.





    Picturesque



    With prey.

    Awesome photos, so very jealous. I've always wanted to live in AK.

    Thanks Brie! I'm glad you enjoy them.

    You know, Washington isn't that far from Alaska.

    Here is a video of Bufo boreas. I thought it particularly interesting because the toad produced its call while it was in my hand. It's just a short clip, but you can hear the sound this creature makes, and also you can see the frothy white toxin being excreted from its hind legs.

    Sort of random, but some clubmosses from a previous trip.



    And some P. vulgaris (which is hard to photograph in situ by the way!)



    A 5 am sunrise.



    An Alaskan Sunrise



    I just got a new car! I'm really excited. It's a 1992 VW jetta diesel that has a vegetable oil system installed. Anyway, I decided to head on over to Nowhere and take the new baby for a spin.





    I call it Nowhere because if any of you remember hearing about the alleged "Bridge to Nowhere" fiasco that made national Television, well this is where the bridge would have led to. And this, this is the Road to Nowhere that did get built, for reasons unknown.



    Either side of the road is surrounded by wetlands and old-growth forest, or like here, a little patch of wild columbine.



    Driving is fun, but the car is a slow car and I really was here for different reasons.





    D. rotundifolia



    D. anglica







    With prey



    I'm pretty sure that this is a hybrid between the two species, the first that I have seen.



    Lots of seedling Utricularia



    U. minor, maybe?



    Big daddy anglica!





    Utricularia





    Cotton grass

    It's pretty quiet and I am pretty sure I was the only on the seven mile road that day. I also didn't have any weapons with me so the feeling of solitude was pretty immense, enough so that when these ducks got startled I just about had a bowel movement.



    Interesting foliage



    More Utricularia





    Deer Mountain



    Nuff said













    D. rotundifolia will grow anywhere



    This very deep grass surrounded a very deep little stream.



    I could hear a babbling brook somewhere in there, but I didn't have the nerve to risk finding it.



    Packed full of Utricularia!



    I can't put my finger on it... What doesn't fit here?



    Back on my way over to Somewhere, Alaska

    More pictures, my friends.

    Utricularia sp.



    Jellyfish



    The economy



    The sun



    Can you spot the tadpole of Ambystoma macrodactylum?



    My beach.



    A mountain hike.





    Superior air quality.





    A home











    Monkshood



    This is the only spot where I have found Rubus arcticus to grow on the island.

    I found only one plant. No berries...

    Was it worth the search? Yes.



    The snow doesn't totally melt.



    And the Marsh Marigold don't totally care.

    Shooting star flowers





    So refreshing.



    Alpine splendor



    The view is impeccable.







    The alpine understory - thick and arduous.



    The lichen - phenomenal.



    The climb - treacherous.





    The Pinguicula vulgaris - plentiful.















    But we made it down.





    Some made it up.



    Never gets old.



    Our sites were set here.



    And it was worth it.
