The stands of birch trees alight with fall colors line the Seward Highway near Tern Lake on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017 near Cooper Landing, Alaska. The fall colors have hung onto the trees on the Kenai Peninsula this year, leading many out into the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and Chugach National Forest to enjoy the sunshine between rain showers. Clouds dropped rain on the western Kenai Peninsula Wednesday and Thursday, but the National Weather Service predicts that sunshine will grace the area on Friday and Saturday, with highs in the low 50s. However, the forecast is for the rain to return Saturday night and continue through Sunday. (Photo by Elizabeth Earl/Peninsula Clarion)
