The sculpture entitled "First Family" in Fairbanks purposely does not have clearly identifiable facial features. This is to avoid trying to second guess which of the many native groups might have been the first Alaskan residents.
Fairbanks has an easily walked downtown with some interesting buildings, a couple of museums and some well recommended restaurants. These two reflections struck me during our stroll.
On an excursion out of Fairbanks, we stopped to visit an above ground portion of the Alaska Oil Pipeline.
This map of the pipeline was made from a piece of the pipe material.
