I often say, along with other Alaskans, that I live in a place of 2 seasons, winter and summer.

Here is a photo I took on day two of my Denali Aurora trip, last Friday.
This is Savage River, 15 miles inside Denali National Park, the furthest you can take a personal vehicle.
Looks like springtime does it?
Well spring up here is different that’s for sure,

a few weeks before the big boar Grizz reappears and begins to hunt.
