very cool photos! love the mountains in the backdrop. or would you consider those hills? So i am assuming the leaves have all changed... or is it mostly coniferous forests where the leaves don't change?

Yah, the birch and aspen turn yellow, and the fireweed brush turns red. It's nice, but nowhere near as colorful as Vermont. (Where I'm from)

Here's another view..

I'd say from $50K/acre right near Anchorage to $10K/acre an hours drive from Anchorage northward. Or 3 hours drive southward. Buildable land is becoming scarce near Anchorage... (only two roads out of town, north or south)

Well, I'd consider them mountains, but there's bigger ones behind them So they could be called "foothills". This thread has a picture with pretty good colors for around here... (Last photo)
