The first  snow of the season clings to a layer of thin ice on Frog Pond

As the sun sets on Autumn.

Fall can be brief in Interior Alaska.

The  bare birches, like sentinels, stand, waiting for winter.

In the Goldstream Valley the ponds have iced over.

Holding their secrets hostage until April or May.
