Elymus – Wild-Rye


Above is a landscape image of the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes of Kobuk Valley National Park in Alaska. The image was taken by Michael Compagno while on vacation. The grass seen colonizing the sand dunes is an Elymus species, of which Alaska has quite a few species and most of which have the common name of wild-rye.
