Tourist season!

A very busy short season when the roads are more busy. All kinds of vehicles can be seen, from recreational vehicles, cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

Construction season!

Sometimes the longest season of all, it can in some years out due the winter season. Every year they are doing something!

Autumn season!

A nice time for drives along the roads, fall colors are at there best around the first and second week of September in Alaska.

The roads are a lot less busy in the autumn season. People who are not staying for winter had better be on their way out.

Winter season!

Then before you know it, it's that time of year again! It's a nice long season if you like winter time. There is many winter sports to enjoy. Best is a hot tub when it's snowing! And no bugs!

Look Out For Moose!!

Spring season!

When the melt down comes and things start growing again.

The end of the road or perhaps the start, depends which way you are going!

End of seasons!

There was some big fires here a few years ago. Could be some this year as the danger is at extreme right now. No rain for awhile and extremely dry. Many of the spruce trees are dead and dying. Vast cycles of destruction and renewal.

I'm doing the drive from Portland through BC and YT, then exploring near Fairbanks, Denali NP, Anchorage, Homer, etc. Mostly camping. I wish I had time for Kodiak Island.

The four seasons of Alaska. And a moose runs through it 🙂

Great photos Shasta. The RVs descend on us in Vermont also in the summer. Especially here by the lake. Plus we get the fall and winter seasons. I just wish there were more moose. They are supposed to be around be we haven't found any yet.

Beautiful country Shasta. I’ve always lived with the four seasons.

No moose here but lots to watch for if travelling through New Brunswick. Hubby and I almost collided with one in that province as they tend to go out on the highway to get away from the flies in summer.

Thank you ❤ @redheadpei! :-)
I wonder if any will ever swim over? Sure not good to
encounter them in the road, especially in winter! Glad your
all we ok! They also go out in the road to get away
from high snow.
