Anchorage to Seattle Day 2: Fall Walk To Hidden Lake Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge

[At Yukon Public Library in Whitehorse]

 It's Fall up here!  This is on the road at Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge right near the Canadian Border.

We stopped at Hidden Lake trail - 2 miles round trip - for a bit of morning exercise before what seemed like the inevitable rain came.

We grazed on blueberries, cranberries, and sweet ripe rose hips.

At the lake, Joan spotted in the binoculars a large moose way on the other side.  By the time a got the telephoto lens on, it had hidden in the trees.  You can barely see her in this picture. 

Here are some other shots along the trail.


A little down the road is the Refuge Visitor Center which closes after September 15 and we were there September 16.  But the view was still available.
There was a reminder that Washington DC's reach is far.  I don't think cutting back on the hours here is too big a loss.  It's nice and should be available, but it's not essential to be open longer.

And more spectacular view along the road.
