Crystal clear waters at Wander Lake
#TroveOn Endless ducks at Wander Lake! Hiking through trails Around UAF. From the parking lot by the pond people fish at, go left and about 2 miles down (if that) is this! Fall is such a short season here that it is important to get out and see the colors while you can! A walk through Creamers Field can leave you awestruck with its beautiful display of yellows and oranges. Our Lovely field after getting lost among the trails. I think they do plant research here? This frost has been here for 2 months now. It is amazing to me how nothing melts. Check out those beautiful trees! The James W. Dalton Highway, usually referred to as the Dalton Highway (and signed as Alaska Route 11), is a 414-mile (666 km) road in Alaska. It begins at the Elliott Highway, north of Fairbanks, and ends at Deadhorse near the Arctic Ocean and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. Once called the North Slope Haul Road (a name by which it is still sometimes known), it was built as a supply road to support the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System in 1974. It is named after James Dalton, a lifelong Alaskan and an engineer who supervised construction of the Distant Early Warning Line in Alaska and, as an expert in Arctic engineering, served as a consultant in early oil exploration in northern Alaska.
#snow #blue Ice glasses on ice plates on the ice bar. The appletini is all real, though. (aurora ice bar, chena hot springs resort)
#BarLove Winter scene at creamers field We drove from morning to sunset... Almost there, Coldfoot!
#snow Halloweens coming :) The Aurora Ice Bar is one of Chena Hot Springs awesome attractions. Its located inside their pretty impressive ice museum. $15 gets you a tour of the museum and another $15 gets you their signature (and very strong) appletini. You can sip it from a fur covered stool at the bar. Everything, including the glass you can keep (which is traditionally smashed on the ground outside the museum) is made of ice.

#BarLove Alaska has some of the most amazing views I have ever seen- including web you look straight up! The sky is so big here and the clouds seem to follow their own rules! Lake on the forest trail Taken at the park next to UAF. It was cool enough that the mosquitoes weren't out en mass yet but all the snow that's (still) melting has left the ground verrrry soggy. Bring walking boots! The terminal building at Fairbanks Airport. Another picture of the lake at the UAF sledding hill Northern lights, the most beautiful thing, i've ever Seen! Creamers field's Taiga Trail is quickly becoming one of my favorite places for a hike. The trail is short (maybe about 2 miles out to and around wander lake and back) but it is beautifully maintained and offers a great view of wildlife and waterfowl. Very peaceful A stopover at Joy, on the way to Arctic Circle, Alaska
#WinterWonders A mushroom walks into a bar and asks the bartender if she'll go on a date. She said no and he asks That's Brad the young chap who drove me across arctic circle to Coldfoot for the night. #Snow is like his second nature!
#blue Sven's Basecamp Hostel in Fairbanks has some of the coolest accommodation options--such as this treehouse, a tipi, cabins, wall tent glamping, etc. Sven also has a couple cute dogs and one teeny tiny husky puppy that everyone fought over to hold. Rent canoes here as well. Showers are costly (25 cents per minute!) but only because their water has to be brought in via truck so they try not to use too much too quickly. Wifi available.
More on www.ajauntwithjoy.com Morning in Fairbanks AK, little of the Aurora in the distance. On the Horizon is Mt Denali/McKinley unbelievably beautiful There's something unexpectedly pretty about fireworks in the A rainy walk through the park :) Check out this little guy! So cute! And so trusting! Lol I stayed here in the glass gazebo for a night and found it was a pretty good hostel, however I like Sven's Basecamp Hostel in town more.
Billie's is close to the bus system and walking distance to a few attractions in Fairbanks though, and she (Billie the owner) has two overweight pugs and a homey feeling. Free showers unlike Sven's which was one pro over the other hostel.

More on www.ajauntwithjoy.com Everybody I've spoken to and anything I read about Fairbanks said that the museum was a major highlight...I personally found it quite small and disengaging, although I think if you watch one of the movies (IMAX?) available, you'll have a better experience. I had also already been to the native heritage museum in Barrow, AK which had similar information and relics/displays on native culture and wildlife etc.
More on www.ajauntwithjoy.com A fun spot to have a drink and people watch. Sample six 4 ounce beers for $12. If you go for a pint, the porter and stout are particularly nice. If in Fairbanks, you GOTTA eat here. Outstanding food and drink, service, and a pretty location right on the river with an outdoor patio option. Tried the signature blackberry limeade and got UH-MAZING pear and gorgonzola bruschetta (in the photo). Also tried the smoked salmon BLT and king crab melt sandwiches.
More on www.ajauntwithjoy.com I went to the hockey game it was army agents air-force and army won 6 to 0 Statue near entrance of Museum of the North on the campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Sven's Basecamp Hostel office...cutest cabin I've seen in AK so far. Loved this hostel in Fairbanks.
