Fairbanks

July 22, 2011

The drive into Fairbanks saw us get to the end of the Alaska Highway and drive along a highway with intermittent views of the fairly impressive Alaska ranges in the distance.

Fairbanks is a pretty small city with around 30,000 people but with a full complement of services. This is also the site of our cheapest diesel so far.

We have spent a day in Fairbanks to catch our breath and provision for our trip up the Dalton Highway.

There is not an enormous amount to do in Fairbanks. We did however visit the Large Animal Research Station to see some Musk Ox and visit Pioneer Park (a fairly pointless theme park) where Sarah had a run in with a Grizzly Bear !

However the highlight of our visit to Fairbanks was the WEIO.
