June 20, 2014 – Picture of the Day: My Public Lands photographer Bob Wick, just spent time on Bureau of Land Management Lands (BLM) in Alaska. Here’s what he had to say about this photo: “Attached is my first photo of the midnight sun from Taylor Peak above the 40 Mile Wild and Scenic River near Chicken AK. The 40 Mile is actually 390 miles long and is the longest federally managed wild and Scenic River. I’m still south of the Arctic Circle so the sun sets from about 12:30 AM until about 3 AM, but it stays like dusk outside. Colin, the BLM employee I am with (& who is in the pic) is from Fairbanks & said they don’t even try July 4th fireworks there as it’s too bright to see them.” (Credits – Bob Wick and the Bureau of Land Management).
