Wildflowers

Wildflowers

One of the great joys of hiking in Alaska is seeing the plants and flowers, watching how they change as you pass through different ecosystems and elevations, and learning the names and characteristics of the species you see. The mountains and woods where we hike are always beautiful, but when you understand what you are seeing the pleasure is greatly increased. Join host Charles Wohlforth and guests to learn more about Alaska wildflowers.

Forum On the Oil Tax Referendum

Forum On the Oil Tax Referendum

Taxes from oil production pay for a hefty chunk of Alaska’s state government. Last year the Legislature narrowly passed Senate Bill 21, which offers tax cuts to encourage more drilling in the wake of declining oil production statewide. On August 19, voters will have the chance to repeal those cuts. Alaska Common Ground brings panelists from both sides of the debate to hash out the details of the oil tax referendum on the table.

Few details are available about Sunday’s 3 am drive-by shooting in Anchorage near 47th Avenue and Arctic Blvd. An Anchorage party bus with 17 people inside was shot 10 times by at least four different guns. Bullets entered through the back window and the body of the 28-passenger vehicle. No one was injured.

Chilkoot Pass

Chilkoot Pass

This week’s Outdoor Explorer comes to you from the Chilkoot Trail, the infamous route used by Klondike gold rushers during the late 1800s. As you walk the trail, signs of that crazy gold rush period are evident, but even more impressive is how a century has erased much of the gold rush’s footprint. Host Charles Wohlforth and friends take on the 33-mile trail over five days of hiking.
