Yes, that blue bit of litter is a tarp. We Alaskans love our tarps. The LFG hubby wanted to stop the car, dash out and snatch it. Alas, we were going about 70 mph at the time. It might still be there if anyone's interested (Palmer Hay Flats State Game Refuge).
5. The sun is shining. (I have no picture. I have been thwarted by nature: a cloudy day. Again.) And plans for fishing, camping, hiking, biking, swimming, boating, gardening, etc. are being made. Some daylight facts: When a place goes from 5.5 hours of daylight on January 1st to more than 13 hours by April 1st, that will put a smile on anyone's face. Well, anyone that hasn't stepped in dog doo....
Any Alaskans out there (or springtime visitors) want to submit a number six?
How do you know it's spring in your area?
