Cotton Grass - it does look like cotton

Pretty country leaving Denali

Alaska has 2 seasons - winter & road construction!

We followed the Nenana River most of the day

And drove thru trees

Lots of black spruce = muskeg = frost heaves = road construction

Nenana River at the town of Nenana

The truck loads in Alaska are really a mixed bag

Minto Flats - bogs, small lakes & creeks

Another view

The fireweed & other wildflowers are spectacular!

The bees are loving the wildflowers, too

This is for our friend Juanita - some quilting we've seen recently

There was a car show in the rv park this evening -...

Yesterday we drove a few hours from Denali to Fairbanks. It should have been just a couple of hours but we sat at a construction zone for quite awhile & then followed the pilot truck for 11 miles!

It was a pretty drive out of the mountains & back into the mountains & back out of the mountains.

River's Edge RV Park on the outskirts of Fairbanks is a very nice rv park for Alaska. It has lots of nice trees, some grass, the spaces are separated by trees & bushes & it's on the Chena River.

This morning we did our laundry - great laundry facilities with lots of washers & driers & a reasonable $2/load. This afternoon we went to the farmers market & then drove downtown to see what was there.

More of Fairbanks to come...
