Description

Milepost 307 of the Dalton Highway marks a long stretch of exceptionally brillliant fireweed near the shoulder, an incendiary carpeting of lavender. Amid the purple, a few red and yellow wildflowers popped like flaming sparklers while hovering above them was the fluffiness of cumulous clouds in the sky. In the distance there were hills. The near hills green and vibrant, the far hills gray and faded, like memories of themselves.
