Alaskan Solstice! The time in Denali, Alaska is 11:59pm on June 21st. This picture is taken without a flash. In the summer, all of Alaska gets 24-hour sunlight for at least one day at the Solstice.
Most summer days Alaska will have19 hours of sunlight during the summer at its peak…and it seems as though no one sleeps. When the sun does set in the wee hours, it comes right back up, so ‘night’ is never dark in the summer, but just beautiful shades of sunset, or sunrise.
Glad you were in my Odd neighborhood. Feel free to drop by any time. Odd Loves Company and odd loves you and you and you!! I would love to hear from you in the comment section of this blog, or on Facebook or Twitter!
