Description: The most prominent peak in the Mat-Su is Pioneer Peak (6,500') located just outside the
small town of Palmer, Alaska at five below zero. A couple of winter phenomena that are not encountered
in many other places are ice fog and black ice. Ice fog is composed of ice crystals suspended in the air,
which sometimes happens when it's 40 below, and it's just as challenging to drive in as any other kind of
fog. Another dramatic winter phenomenon is the building up of hoarfrost on trees. Because the Palmer
area often has several windless days in a row, a thick layer of hoarfrost sometimes builds up on exposed
surfaces, turning them a frosty white.
This print is treated with an ultra violent protective. The print will be rolled and inserted into a mailing tube.
It will be mailed first class by the U.S. Postal Service or UPS and insured.
