Southbound

We made it to our northern most destination of Fairbanks. After camping out for 2 weeks straight we got a hotel room. I think we were all pretty excited to sleep in an actual bed and the kids were pretty thrilled with the other amenities like 4 walls and an 8 foot ceiling not to mention a private bath!

At Fairbanks we have been gone from home for 20 days and stayed in 6 hotel rooms, driven 5339 miles, we’ve seen more wildlife, beautiful landscapes and interesting people than we could have imagined. And now we are heading home.

We stopped at the town of North Pole Alaska because our trip just would not have been complete without that.

We also stopped at this historic roadhouse with beautiful flowers. All if the flowers in alaska are huge I guess it’s the weather. Chilli is posed next to some beautiful columbine – I had to take this picture for Kathy.
