Jun 28, 2009 - Day 16, 17....Chena Hot Springs

Well, today began with a constant drizzle, mud and muck. After hearing about the other riders wanting to end their trip and the others trailering their bikes, I was a bit nervous about the day. AND...it was snowing 50 miles west in Glenallen! I wore two pair of long underwear, jeans, chaps, and my raingear...cold and wet. The ride out was a bit discouraging, but soon the rain let up and we were on our way to the North Pole! The sun peeked out, I prayed, and they were wonderfully answered. Got to the North Pole with sun, shed some clothes,...

Aug 1, 2007 - Cripple Creek Campground to Chena Hot Springs Resort

Well we packed up and left Cripple Creek Campground about 9:30 this morning with overcast skies and a few sprinkles.

It is located about 30 miles up the Steese Highway which is the highway we took to Cripple Creek Campground. The ski "resort" looks to be about the size of Ski Bowl on Mt. Hood for those of you familiar with that ski resort. We didn't see a name for the ski area. But it...

Sep 5, 2006 - Fairbanks to Chena River Recreation Area

Today the weather was cloudy and cool so Blake and Doloris decided to go on the Riverboat Discovery trip. Norm stayed at the motorhome to get caught up on the trip journal. The boat was warm and comfortable. We learned a lot about the native culture and life on the river. We stopped at Susan Butcher's house and watched Jean, another Iditarod winner, work with her dog teams. We also walked through a Chena Village while our guide talked about the native way of doing things. Dixie Alexander showed us a beautiful fur coat she had made from...
