Weekend: Budding Trees

Tuesday was the two week mark for how long I have been in the AK. This is the longest I have been here in years, seriously 4 or 5 years. I cannot even remember when I was last here for the budding of the trees. When I got to FAI two weeks ago it was downright ugly. Everything was dirty and NOTHING was green. Now the trees have budded (at least the birch trees have) and the grass is speckled with green patches. The sky has been a lovely blue and the weather warm.
Beautiful birch leaf on Birch Hill. My dad and I did a 6k jaunt on the White Bear trail (pink trail on the map). I am going to head back up there this weekend. Have a great long weekend!

OOoh, I'm so jealous!! I haven't been home for the big green-up in forever. It's one of my favorite days of the year, provided I'm there. :-)
