This weekend I went on a walk with a couple of friends to Smith Lake on the University trail system. It was unseasonably warm, an absolutely beautiful day to be out. As we walked along the edge of the lake we noticed that the area around the lily pads was melting at a much faster rate than the rest of the lake, leaving them exposed to the surface. I am wondering if this is one of those unique adaptations that only occurs in Alaska lily pads. It was really cool looking, but I have no idea what causes these areas to melt so much faster. Is it just light, or is there more to it? Any of you smarty pants out there know the answer?

Yesterday we took a walk over Twin Bears...It was a glorius spring day. Much different than our Easter Walk last year.
Arrluk has quickly learned to drink from the Camelback.
Brody is looking lovingly at David. (Did I mention David is eating cheese?)
The view was spectacular from the top.
