Farewell and Cheers!_250413

September 27, 2012 Posted by: William C. Clark

The leaves have turned red, yellow, and orange.  The sun has been veiled by clouds and the rain has not stopped for what seems like weeks (Seward received over 27 inches of rain in September).  The sidewalks are empty.  Yes, the summer has passed.  It was a good one, though.  As the seasons change, so too does the staffing in most national parks.  For Kenai Fjords, that means this blog will slumber with the bears.  Hopefully, you have enjoyed the bouquet of readings we presented here: gulls, raptors, glaciers, soundscapes, and crustaceans to name a few.  Be sure to check back next year when staffing is replenished and researches have more first-hand accounts to share!

Till then, remember to explore your world, however you define it, and cheers!

Hoary Marmot

The Hoary Marmot is the largest member of the ground squirrels. These guys hibernate half or more of their life away. They have very thick fur and a substantial fat layer that protects them from the cold. You are not as likely to see them on hot days as they hide in the shade to keep cool.
