Tern Lake sits just before the junction of the Sterling and Seward Highways and as such is a natural stopping point. The parking area can be bustling during the summer tourist season but on a Tuesday morning in mid-September, Tern Lake provided a point of stillness along our path.

Just after eight this morning, hurtling down the Sterling Highway toward the Mystery Hills. Stopping for photos was out of the question, so I snapped as we went, lending a watercolor-like quality to the image....
We crossed the Kenai River at Cooper Landing. Looking upstream, Kenai Lake catches the subdued light of a cloudy autumn morning. The lingering, lonely patches of last winter's snow wait on the hill tops for reinforcements.
Although we were in the shadows of the mountains for a while after daybreak, the forest was bright and full of light from the changing colors of the leaves.
Morning light on the peaks of Turnagain Pass.
