President Obama signed into law Monday a bill naming a mountain and an ice field in Alaska after longtime Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.
The bill, sponsored by U.S. Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich and Rep. Don Young, names a mountain peak in Denali National Park and Preserve for Stevens.
It also puts his name on part of an ice field in the Chugach Mountains. The 13,895-foot peak, to be named Stevens Peak, is commonly known as South Hunter Peak and was the tallest unnamed peak in Alaska.
Stevens represented Alaska in the U.S. Senate from 1968 through 2008 and was the longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history. He died Aug. 9 in a plane crash in Western Alaska.

Yes it's coming. The snow is making its way down the mountains. We call it termination dust. Summer and fall is being terminated.

My photography buddy Britt and I drove to Portage on Saturday to do some Bird TLC business. The whole way there the wind was gusting, the rain was falling, this just looked yucky. Right before we finished our main objective, the weather cleared up. So obviously the cameras came out.
Lighting was great on the trip down even with the rain, but we couldn't stop. It was getting bad on the way back, but we were able to get a few shots off and enjoy the view and the trip back. It turned out to be a really good day.
You can see more of my photos here.

It's been getting below freezing at night.
It's been showing a few snow flakes here and there.
There's been thin layers of ice on top of the water in the morning.
