ABC Revisiting F

It was Fall when we visited far flung Fairbanks two years ago on a cruisetour.
Thye fountain of the First Family monument
 is a favorite feature of Fairbanks.

Having a plane parked on your lawn is not all that uncommon for homes along the Chena River that flows through Fairbanks. Residents are ready to take flight at any time, much as we might hop into our Ford and head down the highway to the nearest town. It's all the same--as the nearest town is most easily reached by plane.

Fairbanks reFlects the old and the new meeting in modern Alaska.

Oh my goodness. What a gorgeous, gorgeous place to visit. LOVE the pictures. I think that is so interesting about the planes on the lawn. Fascinating!

Amazing colors and photos. Would be nice to have a flying machine parked on the lawn. :)

Those trees are glorious.

Is that an elephant peeping over his shoulder?
