Spring or Winter?

in #photography3 years ago

Spring in Alaska often means unpredictable weather throughout the state. We headed to Hatcher Pass to check out the conditions. We were greeted with a white out and winter temperatures. Below the mountains the weather was 40 degrees and clear skies, but above we were transported back to the cold. In the pass there are beautiful cabins you can rent for a few nights. The red huts contrasted amazingly against the winter landscape. It's crazy what a few thousand feet of elevation gain can do to the weather systems. Hatcher Pass varies incredibly between seasons from vibrant green in the summer to a golden yellow in Autumn.

Thank you for checking out my blog! The trip to Prudhoe Bay is only 10 days away. We will be traveling to the top of Alaska and into the arctic circle. The 60 day, 12,000 mile road trip is a month away!

Beautiful... Have you been to Iceland? Can it be a bit similar to Alaska? (Great photos)

Yes they are very similar but Alaska is a lot more difficult to travel through. A lot of places you need a plane to reach. Thanks for commenting!

I see the beauty of being in the middle of that white nowhere, so to speak. I guess those who live there are used to it. Those red cabins are cute. Looking forward to reading about your trip, have fun :)

Thanks! It can be tough to get used to the extreme winter but it’s beautiful!
