Alaska's Stonehenge

The Granite Tors...rocky outcrops that formed millions of years ago and stick up out of the hills in the Chena River Recreation Area (aka our backdoor). Andrew made a trip up to see these ancient rock pinnacles last weekend while I was working. He ended up spending the night under the stars and the northern lights at around -30! He took these photos the next morning on his way back down.

A wildfire swept through the area several years ago and has left many standing dead trees.

The Alaska Range dominates the background.

The morning light breaks the chill and warms the granite.
