Termination Dust

On our weekly trip to Denali National Park today we witnessed true evidence that summer is gone: termination dust.

Termination dust is a fancy name for, none other than ... snow.

August is a month of precipitation. In the lowlands, such as Two Rivers, the precipitation is in rain. At the kennel, we have had rain showers every other day for the past week.

In the mountains, the precipitation is whiter and colder. The snow line starts at 3500 feet.

It might be here to stay.
