Fairbanks, AK

5-26-2013 ---- Being Hoosiers, of course we watched the Indy 500 – so glad Konan finally won! 

Winter in Alaska has become summer.  Just last week Fairbanks had 8” of SNOW (as did Palmer).  But then the sun came out, the tree buds are popping and by next week will be in full leaf.  Today is sunny 80’s.

Pioneer Park was enjoyable with many old log cabin shops and buildings of yesteryear.  A family friendly place for sure.Fairbanks 048 Fairbanks 049

Highlight of the day was opening weekend 1/2 price Salmon Bake!  Yummy!  Denny had prime rib and it was Salmon for me.  Great day for a picnic!Fairbanks 055

The Palace Theatre was a great place to learn a little history of Fairbanks, hear some tales,, and enjoy the humor and dance!Fairbanks 043 Fairbanks 037  

We also had time to enjoy the visitor center and a walk along the Chena River.  The Elks Lodge is just a few blocks away – right on the river.  Folks enjoyed inner tubes, kayaks, rafts and boats.

If it's still there see the Comedy show at " Fly By Night". It was good.
