Fairbanks is a friendly little city in the Tanana Valley interior of Alaska. Founded by a gold rush early in the 20th century, to the north , and not far away, is the Arctic-- to the south is the Alaska mountain range. Indian and Eskimo villages are scattered from the Yukon River north to the Arctic Ocean.

                             The Chena River provides a beautiful park-like setting--

                                               --for the walking and bike path.

                      One of the few places where you can touch the Alyeska pipeline.

Creamer's Field is a bird refuge that attracts sandhill cranes, Canada geese and White-faced geese [with orange feet].
