In July you can really notice the color of the grass start to change, as with this photo of the Mendenhall Game Refuge. It's quite beautiful, and probably our best "fall colors" even though true fall is still far away. July 16th, 2009.
July is also time for our most abundant wildflower, Fireweed, otherwise known as epilobium angustifolium, common in the North around the globe, and pretty everywhere. In the background you can see some airport landing lights and the Mendenhall River. July 16th, 2009.
A Mallard Duck on a log, enjoying the sun. Ducks tend to be a little more skittish away from the public parks, but give them a nice sunny spot and they don't want to move. Captured in the beaver pond near the Glacier Visitor Center in Juneau, Alaska on June 24, 2009.
