We flew into Fairbanks when the temperature was 96 in Indianapolis. We were pleased to arrive to temperatures in the upper 60's.
Our son who is stationed at Eielson AFB met us at the airport and we followed him to out motel, Captain Bartletts Inn. The next morning we drove to Denali and spent the whole day there, how beautiful!!
Over the course of the next week we put over 1500 miles on our rental car. We saw much of the interior of the state and found it to be an adventure every direction we took.
We spent one overnight trip in a remote cabin off of the Tanana river fly fishing for King and Chum Salmon. We panned for gold and tried to make it to the Arctic Circle but did not have the proper vehicle.
It was a trip of a lifetime we will never forget.
