September 7 2009 Alaska Newsletter

Wow! What a month August was - it flew by! The past two weeks have been spent (every single day of it) volunteering at our Alaska State Fair in Palmer. It honestly still felt like summer when the fair started on August 27th. But as so often happens, we literally all got to watch the season change from summer to fall as the fair progressed. Today was the last day ... and our wonderful summer (at least here in south central Alaska) has ended with a rush of cooler temps and golden leaves on the ground.

My most recent article describes the change of seasons in more detail. Here's the latest article from the Alaska site at I hope you enjoy it!

Autumn in Alaska
Autumn in Alaska is a season of change. Golds and reds take over from the greens and blues of summer. Cool, crisp Fall rain, hunting season and the hint of "termination dust" replace sunshine, mosquitoes and summer fishing trips.

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Alaska located here -

We've almost completed the fun "Name Alaskan Animals Alphabet Game in the Alaska Forum - only two letters to go! Check it out - I'm betting everyone who participated or even read along knows a lot more about the wildlife (land, sea and air) in Alaska than they did when we started this game. If you missed it, you can still start at the beginning and read the fun and sometimes thought provoking posts as we wound are way through the alphabet and pondered which answers were legit and which were stretching it a bit too far .

As soon as we finish up these last two letters ("Y" and "Z" ought to be a challenge!), a prize will be sent to the contributor who had the highest number of accurate answers and then we will get started on a whole NEW game. Check it out when you have time.

I hope to hear from each of you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I enjoy on your feedback and would love ideas for future articles, games or discussions!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, too. Wee all love free knowledge - and learning more about Alaska; it's people, places and wildlife, is what this site is all about!
