There is only one time in the year when Mendenhall Valley turns into a bright purple carpet. Summer is the best time to visit this place. You will see thousands of blooming flowers in one place, which is not very typical for Alaska. That's why pink fi​reweeds and violet shooting stars attract many people from year to year. Such blossoms are a rare thing in these lands, so don't miss an​ opportunity to enjoy it and take amazing pictures!​
