Hi everyone. My name is Maison Anderson. I have lived in Alaska my whole life, I was born and raised in Valdez, AK and am currently living in Anchorage, AK. I love Alaska and the outdoors. I spend a lot of time camping during the summer, I actually just got back from a camping trip. I also spend some time in the fall hunting. I also like wildlife photography and it has grown to be my favorite hobby. I’m really excited to observe the plant life as well as the animals life when I am out and about.
I don’t really have a favorite plant but I like anything with really big leaves, so ferns or plants you might find somewhere tropical. I think it is really cool how those plants sometimes use their leaves as a funnel to obtain water. An Alaskan example would be the poison ivy plant as those leaves can grow to a fairly big size.
Here is a picture of what I believe if fireweed from my camping trip this weekend. I really like this plant since it has so many flowers.
