I went to Fairbanks last weekend and what a trip there. We stopped at the south viewing rest area and the top was about to come out from behind a few small clouds. Well, they seemed small from 40 miles away. I've lived here over 30 years and have never seen Denali so much in one summer.
We also stopped at the Alaskan Veterans Memorial. One of my favorite places along the highway. There were still flowers from the 4th of July.
That's my friend Susan next to the Alaska Territorial Guard memorial. If you look where the ATG member is pointing and where the binoculars are, they're pointing at Denali.
It was good weather for the moose to be swimming. I didn't bring my swim suit.
Sunshine was out the whole way.
It was a good trip. I'll have more photos soon. I'm so far behind processing, it's not funny. I blame it on the good weather. If it's sunny out, I don't want to be inside behind a computer.
Can you imagine driving north on the Richardson Highway, it's 80°+ outside on the 4th of July in Alaska and you com over a hill and this is what you see?
That's what my friend Terri and I go to see for the holiday. The funny thing is that it was out the whole day. They say that only 25% of the people that come to Alaska to see Denali, get to see it cloud free.
And it was a hot cloud free day.
And a beautiful fun day. Thanks Terri for going along.
