Alaskans -- especially those of us in Southcentral -- just experienced a very hot and dry summer. Wildfires raged across the state, homes were destroyed, and our scenic vistas were obscured with a smoky haze. The historically rainy August never materialized. Wells in some places dried up. And a couple weeks ago, I saw something in Keystone Canyon in Valdez that I never thought I would see - an anemic Bridal Veil Falls trickling no more than a garden hose. Any rain is a welcome sight to alleviate this extended drought.
The base of this waterfall is nearly 1000 feet from the source water which is two beautiful, turquoise tarns in the alpine of the Kenai Mountains. Photographed in early September, I call this "Waterfall of Hope" because we cannot see the source of the water, but hope that it contains enough left to sustain the life in the valley below until it is replenished by the coming winter snows.
