My welcome in to AK

Well, to finish off this category of actually Getting to Alaska I figured I’d add a little bit of info for my arrival to Alaska and Fairbanks.

I arrived in Fairbanks on Tuesday July 24th, 2012 which puts my total time at 11 days. Originally I thought 10-11 days would be a good amount. In ways it was, but I could have easily taken 2 months and still not got the full experience. There was so much to see and experience and I simply didn’t have the time to do it all. But I still had an excellent time!

Coming through Haines Junction and through the St. Elias Mountains were really beautiful! I feel like I keep saying that but there were just so many neat areas. The water around these mountains were a super teal blue it was crazy! I’d like to come back to this area for some snowboarding some day. The road goes right along them and you could literally start hiking up right from the road for some fun fresh turns.

Now that I’m in Alaska it’s weird to think about. I had been wanting to come here for sooooo long and I’m finally here. Now I just need to see the Aurora Borealis, and that will come shortly once winter, coldness, and darkness hits.

I drive to Anchorage for my first week of work then will be back to Fairbanks for the rest of it.

Excited to see what the new job will be like…
