Fifty shades of purple—that's how lupine flowers can be described. These plants grow mainly in the wild, so the best place to spot them in Alaska are the coastal hills and mountain fields. Lupines are one of the first plants to bloom here, and because of this, they are even more beautiful. Go to Turnagain Arm, which is a part of the Cook Inlet, in early summer and you will most likely see picturesque violet fields there. And d​on't forget to take a camera!
