Fireweed in Willow Alaska by Robert Swetz July 7-17-2015


For anyone that is not familiar with Fireweed, it is a natural flower that grows wild across the whole state of Alaska.

In fact most of the flowers that are in fields across the state of Alaska are wild. 

There are a handful that have been planted around porches, patios and in front yards of homes.

Hello Bob ...the weather has been beautiful and cool compared to Vegas and California.

It will rain during the mornings and then clear up around noon or 1:00 and the sun still sets around 11:00pm  and the sun rises around 5:00am

VB, so close to Katmai National Park, you should hop in the canoe and paddle on over?

Dear Bob,

Judging by the pictures you took of fireweed, there is still quite a bit of summer left. What takes you to Willow?
