Snow Wood Tikchik State Park, Alaska
Wood Tikchik, located in the southwest of Alaska, is a state park with an area of about 6500 km² and is mainly known for its lakes (shown in the lower right part of the image) and water-based ecosystems. All five species of the Pacific salmon spawn in the park’s lakes and rivers. Further, moose, caribou, and brown bears can be seen. Snowfall accumulations in the park vary from about 1.50 m in the south to more than 4 m in the northern part. This PROBA-V 300 m image, taken at 6 October 2014, shows the first snow that has fallen in the northern part of the park.
