"Frontier Spring" To me, depicts the best of the unspoiled wilderness of Alaska and the Yukon Territory. It is a compilation of the many landscape highlights seen throughout the area during the early spring season in this region of North America. I can almost feel the crisp, cool air and sense the smell of the fresh growth of the spruce trees. The clear blue sky with a trace of cirrus clouds meeting the jagged edges of the towering mountains. The foothills, with their new spring color from the budding trees, serve as a funnel for the runoff from the melting snow. The glass-like water, combined with the golden ground cover, finally free from the long winter freeze, creates a marsh-like appearance of unique colors. The stunning white bark of the Aspen and Birch trees completes the composition.
