    2 AM Near the 40 Mile

    This is my first photo of the midnight sun from Taylor Peak above the 40 Mile Wild and Scenic River near Chicken, Alaska. The 40 Mile is actually 390 miles long and is the longest federally managed wild and scenic river. I’m still south of the Arctic Circle so the sun sets from about 12:30 AM till about 3 AM, but it stays like dusk outside. Colin, the BLM employee in the photo, is from Fairbanks; he says that they don’t even try July 4th fireworks there - it’s too bright to see them.
