This is the near the trailhead of a popular hike, in the Hatcher Pass area of the Talkeetna mountains. Wildflowers, especially fireweed, are plentiful. Those are the headwaters of the Susitna River, with Idaho peak in the distance. This is such a beautiful place, I could have painted in any direction. I am always attracted to the water first, but there are many more possibilities to explore next time.
