Autumn Alaska Vista

James David Broome

As a student of Geography at the University of Alaska, in Fairbanks, I have always started my semester with a trip through interior Alaska. Two close friends of mine came to visit from Arizona, and we made a tour of the Denali Highway and topped it off with a drive throught the Brooks Range and across the North Slope. Here, the Autumn tundra surrenders in a beautiful explosion of colors, as all life prepares itself to embrace the hardship of Winter, until it may begin again in the Spring.
