Quintessentially Home

Challenge #1 in the The Natural World Around Us series. Hosted by Entropius.
Challenge has finished
If you had to describe the natural environment around your home in one picture, what would it be? What natural scene (wildlife, landscape, plant, etc.) is iconic of your home? This can either be something your home region is famous for (cactus in my home of southern Arizona), or something that's less known but still defines the natural environment around where you live (hummingbirds, say, in Arizona). Send the world a postcard describing your home.

Heavy snowfall, mountains and very early sunsets are the hallmark of Valdez, Alaska in the winter. This is the last light of the day after a snow storm.
