Autumn on Southern Taiga
East Fork of the Chandalar River Valley

The autumn colors on the taiga rival the hardwood forests of New England. There is the flame orange of dwarf birch, bright crimson of the bearberry, gold of willow and birch, and pale yellow of lichens all contrasted by the dark green of solitary spruce trees lightly scattered about the land.
