Finally we're off for our 10 day stay in Fairbanks, Alaska's second largest city with a population of about 35,000 people and close to 100,000 in the Borough (or county as some states call it).
Fairbanks is built along the banks of the Chena River, is considered the gateway to the Arctic region, and is a great place to view the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. With dramatic changes in weather, wimps need not apply. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Look at this scenery along our drive:
Yes, that's ice on the river. It is a beautiful day out, not cold at all, but obviously that water is cold.
From this point, we are almost to Delta Junction, the official end of the Alaska Highway. Here we plan to meet with the 18 other rigs in our group for a picture. Right now, I'm watching rain clouds ahead. We'll see what happens when we arrive.
